Great macondo 2018-12-20 1:51

Hi Benny.
I haven't been active on TE for quite a while as a photographer/critiquer, but it's a good thing I had a scroll through the photos today, because I finally learnt why it's called a 'Nudie Suit'. I recognised it immediately I saw the thumbnail - having been a GP fan for over 45 years. I've always been too lazy to find out where the name came from, and now I know. You've quoted one of Gram's best songs there. Sad that he lived such a short and, in his last couple of years, dissolute life. I know he's often credited with the invention of 'Country Rock', but I think that 'honour' goes to Gene Clark eg.'Tried So Hard', 1966: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfu-3iGQIZA Great version recorded later by Burritos without Gram. Anyway, thanks for the opportunity to reminisce, Benny. You wouldn't have posted this and the informative note if you weren't a devotee.
Regards,
Andrew

Cool To macondo: GP

Great to see a musical soulmate here & glad you appreciate my post.
Gram's Nudie suit is in a case with Emmylou's black guitar (the one with the red rose on it).
And there's plenty more, of course!
