The Other Talented Head Brother



I have been trying to put together a Shack ICA for JC for quite some time now but every time I sit down to compile the list I get distracted and just listen to the records and keep forgetting that I am supposed to be ranking them and then trying to pick the 10 best. I think that it may be an impossible task but I will keep trying. One thing that this Shack fest has done has been to remind me that there wasn't just one talented member of the Head family. John is also quite accomplished when it comes to writing songs and also singing them. "Not Afraid of Loving You" is a perfect example of this, a gorgeous gentle love song that was tucked away on the b-side of equally as good Byrds Turn to Stone the sole single from the 2003 album  ". . . Here's Tom With The Weather".

A lovely mellow song to brighten up your midweek.

That is a tough task. Comedy is nailed on , but the other 9 slots would change with the weather

Try to finish that sucker. I don’t know Shack like I do Pale Fountains. An ICA would be a big help. Always liked I Know You Well though.

Doesn't need to be the 10 best....it's what yout think hangs well together as two sides of vinyl (thus what Side A of my Prefab Sprout ICA was Side A of Steve McQueen).

Sorry if I'm giving you sleepless nights Drew!

Not to worry Drew, if you feel you have left something out, I KNOW I will follow you up with a Vol. 2!

On your (and others) recommendation, I've been listening to Here's Tom quite a bit recently. It is a great record.

Was going to leave a long-winded comment, but JC nailed what I was waffling on about in one sentence! Looking forward to this ICA Drew.
