Music Single : To Her Door – Paul Kelly and the Messengers

images (63)

This was the first song I heard by Paul Kelly and the Messengers and it was right up my alley.  It’s another one of those story songs that CB loves.  It delivers big time.  It still sounds good today.  I’ve listened to it a lot.  I listened to the whole album a lot.  Paul Kelly has a strong collection of recordings and this is the one that got me on board.  I even learned some Australian slang.  I figured this was a good piece to go with the ‘I Remember You’ piece by Mumbling About…  The Australian connection.   Check it out and hear a big talent and some of that low down guitar.  I really dig this cut.

    Great choice, CB. Paul Kelly is the real deal as a songwriter. Nice one.

      ‘Gods Hotel’ and ‘Special Treatment’ are a couple of my favorite tunes, period. He has so many. Had a chance to see him over here a few times. I’m a fan for a long time.

    This is the first time I heard of Paul Kelly. I give him a shot and listen to a few of songs. Nice done, without arrangement-eccentricity, without attitude. Reminds me of The Go-Betweens.

      ‘Gods Hotel’. I think you’ll like it. Co written with Nick Cave. Like Bruce said, “He’s the real deal”. You can’t go wrong with anything he does.

    Good tune. I think our fellow blogger from Australia (the Jerz) did a few pieces that first ntroduced me to Kelly.

      I think you are correct. Like Vinyl Connection said about Kelly “He’s the real deal”

        Hey did you see my comment on Catchgroove’s site when you were talking about movies? It was addressed directly to film buff CB.

    I didn’t realise that Paul Kelly and Neil Finn have a live album together https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaTwLDZpnKU

        There’s actually a much better 2 and a half hour clip that I found after I posted that one. I think think it’s 2013 opera house and was released as a live album.
