Unfortunately the video and audio are never really good from a phone, sad but it went down well with the audience smile.

I would love to hear that song more clearly, so have you another recording stored somewhere that I can listen to please.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Grah!!! You phoned in a performance?! smile

ETA: Hey, even the dog liked it! That's good enough for me, my friend! Check YouTube comments, please! smile

ETA: For our friends across the seas, "phoned in a performance", is a (very) tongue in cheek way of saying an artist may not have given a performance his "all". This of course is not true for our friend Graham, but the fact that a phone was used opened up an opportunity for a joke, so I took it. Graham does fantastic work in ALL genres and no offense was meant.

I like your performance Graham.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Roger /Bj this  the  original  version https://soundcloud.com/graham-windle/riverside-cafe   Its  a  bit  clearer  I  think I  posted  the  lyrics  a  while back ,Basically  it  tells  the  story  of  a road side  in the  60s  and  what  used  to  go  on there .One   of  my  friends crashed  and  died  on this  road  but  it  was  a  long  time  after  the  cafe  closed .

With  the  new  band   we  have  a  much  rockier  version   I  still  like  playing  the  simple  version though
