Song for Friday...a wee flashback

Was having a bit of a flashback the other day...high school albums
come back in my mind and I realize that some of the music from
the mid '70s through to the mid '80's was some of the best.
It was the era of 'bands'.
Really good bands like Fleetwood Mac, who started out as a full on
blues band without the ladies and morphed into a band with
a few of those classic rock songs with the harmony of the now,
heavily involved ladies.
Sadly I lost interest in them in later years.
They just didn't have it for me.
Sometimes sex, drugs and rock and roll was a good thing
and some great songs came out of their misguided youth.
Affairs between band members was rampant and this
song, actually this whole album, became a 'he said - she said' myriad of tunes.
So here for you, one of my classic, desert island songs...
Have a great weekend all!!

and the majesty of christ's birth
