Springtime – Jeffrey Lewis
The first time I heard Jeffrey Lewis at Bob’s house, he was playing `the last time I took acid I went insane’ with some bompty house under it, yes! Bob was mixing!!
I loved the song and months later, both Bob and I are slow movers, I managed to get the cd to take on home for a listen.
It has been a firm favorite since! Actually the lp has likely snuck into a top 5 lps ever list for me. Its hard to identify my fave song off …
