1000 SONGS - DAY 52 - SONG # 80

Day 52: The Pure Doctrine

Whatever anybody might say (like comparing the guitar work to Neil Young), these old men rock as hell, and I wish I had been on that gig. Although being a big huge fan of Green on Red, I never saw them live, not even Chuck Prophet or Chris Cacavas with one of their other projects. The category of today's entry should be "a song you listen to when your angry". In whatsoever way this one here may fit into that, it has clearly a cathartic function, and I did play it a lot back in the Eighties and Nineties when there still were some parties at our home. So here is a live version of Green on Red's "The Drifter", a song that has originally been part of "Gas, Food and Lodging" (1985).
