I have developed a very broad taste in music over the years, but Country music was always rather elusive. My problem was more perception than reality, as I did not like a slide-guitar sound (even though the band Yes used one in some tracks that I love), and the lost-love songs were a bit frustrating (even though some of my favourite songs are “lost love” based). The only objection that holds up under scrutiny is my total lack of interest in trucking songs!
Sylvia Tyson, who I knew from her folk songs, recorded “Sleep On My Shoulder” which had a distinct Country flavor (complete with slide guitar in the background) but I still really liked the song! I guess she was my introduction to Country! Enjoy!
