Khingfisher - Speakin Easy (Prohibition Blues)

Khingfisher - Speakin Easy
On the anniversary of Roy Orbison’s death, it’s fitting that I immediately thought Khingfisher’s reinterpretation of “Scottish Choro” would fit perfectly alongside “Bayou Blue” on a fictional mixtape.

 

Craig has many of the same qualities as the great song writer (although this tale of prohibition sounds more like sharing a bottle of wine on the patio of a cafe than needing to return to N’Awlins to reunite with a lover) and his use of melody and delivery hit me with the same type of impact. Great stuff.
