Here we are again - Lonesome is five today. Happy birthday to us.
As we've both said, this site is a bit like a public extension of the kind of rambling conversation that we've been having for a good couple of decades now - we used to swap tapes, then CDs and now we do most of it here on the web.
It's a source of wonder and delight that you lot listen, seem to like it and even join in. So let's celebrate with some cracking old-school country, a bit of folky oddness and a double dose of Eitzel and Gainsbourg. Think that just about sums it up, don't you, Howard?
