"On Sir Francis Drake"

"On Sir Francis Drake"
Okay, an obscure link for 'Sight and Sound' that will take me a while to explain!

Good Friday was a beautiful day @ Stowe Landscape Gardens. The weather has rapidly gone downhill here since Friday!!

This is a shot of the 'Temple Of British Worthies'.There is a bust of Sir Francis Drake here. The owners of Stowe decided that Sir Francis should be included as one of the British Worthies and his bust is in one of the niches. The Youngbloods recorded "On Sir Francis Drake" and it features on their 1969 album, "Elephant Mountain". Therefore, job done methinks :-)

"Job Done". I'd say so. And a fine photo of too!

Oh remember this song! Can't say that I could have ever recognized the title, but I do remember this song and I love it! (Splendid memory!) The Youngbloods were so good. (Big Jesse Colin Young fan here.)

Extra points go to you, Roger, for this fine classic. :)

Thank you very much, Karen :-)) And, cheers for the fave. I have a couple of Youngbloods cd's and a couple of Jesse's solo cd's. Yes...very, very, very good and it is music I always return to :-)

A fine photo indeed. Our weather also was horrible during Easter, except the Saturday when spring occurred for a single day.

Youngblood is completely new to me. Sounds a bit like a melange between Gentle Giant and The Doors . And enlightens my Prog heart. ;)
