Thread Name: Chords Req: Brockie Lads (Jez Lowe)
Subject: RE: Two questions re Jez Lowe
Thanks for your responses! I printed them out so I can go after these other albums you've mentioned. Before I got Two A Roue, I had heard three songs that I knew were by Jez Lowe: The Bergen (several versions), Black Diamonds, and (do I have the title right here? ) Back in Durham Jail. All really different, and I liked them all a lot. I'm still absorbing the songs on Two a Roue which I just got last week. I agree with your statement, Linda, about his incredible songwriting talents.

Townes, I suspect you are right on track about my getting hooked and ending up wanting all the albums. I'll probably start with some of the suggestions here. I think Jez Lowe is scheduled to be at the Old Songs festival this year so If I make it there, I'll be able to catch a live performance as well, which sounds great.

Murrey, I'm glad to hear you have the chords to Brockie Lads, and they would be much appreciated. Do you play this song yourself? And thanks for the up to date recommendations – I'll definitely check out his new album as well.

Again thanks all, and I'm really looking forward to hearing more of Jez Lowe's music. Zhenya
