Jesse Winchester - Black Dog

RIP James Ridout Winchester, better known as Jesse. I was one of the people who bought his first album when it came out. Produced by Robbie Robertson, it featured at least one other member of the Band, Levon Helm, among the backup musicians. This haunting and disturbing song was a standout.

Yes. First-album buyer here. I met him in the mid-70's at a tour party.
Lovely people should not die like that. Putin in his place might have been better.
