Thanks for the post Jamie, and your help in getting the CD GREAT to hear from you. Apr 14, · It is Sunday morning and I have been listening to an album called Mad As The Mist And Snow by Kenny Craddock. A friend of mine sent me it a couple of years ago. I think he thought I would find it interesting because of the Van Morrison faharderimarneusobisecocontge.co played keyboards and piano with Van in the early 80’s and replaced Pee Wee Ellis as Van’s band-leader.
I bet he is sick of people asking him about that though. Another reason I bought this particular book was that several of the poems mentioned County Mayo which Stealin Time - Kenny Craddock - Mad As The Mist And Snow (CD) where my family originated from.
After that I had a bit of a sit down near the Abbey and listened to the buskers and then caught the 4. Tuesday, April 16, Halcyon Days. My friend Robin. It should be quite warm by the weekend. I just opened the back door and there was my friend the robin waiting patiently for some breakfast. Yesterday was a mixed day.
I had to go up town though for some supplies. I also found a nice book with lots of photos of Ireland by Angela McCourt which is the sort of book I might actually read. I played it later on and I quite like it. I would describe it as Electro-Pop. Some of the songs are very catchy.
I enjoyed listening to it while doing the washing up and stuff like that. I planted a few of my sunflowers along the wall. I noticed that some lilies I planted a few weeks ago are shooting up now. Feeling quite pleased with myself I went to the pub and Stealin Time - Kenny Craddock - Mad As The Mist And Snow (CD) three pints of cider. Thank you for the tulips! When I got home, I watched University Challenge and then I saw on the news that there was a fire raging in Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the most famous buildings in the world.
It looked like it was being completely destroyed which put me in a very sombre mood when I went to bed. That is good news for France and the world. A friend of mine sent me it a couple of years ago.
I think he thought I would find it interesting because of the Van Morrison connection. I was just reading a interview with Kenny and he spoke very highly of his time working with Van. The title of this album also comes from a Yeats poem. Sadly, shortly after recording it he was killed in a car crash in Portugal in at the age of Kenny was a multi-instrumentalist. On the opening track One Way Traffic the accordion is very much to the fore. Van as you know recently also made an album of that title.
Battle Song is quite an epic song which begins with some great guitar play. The lyrics written by Laurence Bristow-Smith are very profound and atmospheric as well. The first part is quite a big jazzy arrangement and quite short. The percussion playing of Nana Tsiboe gives it an eerie Celtic sound which is enhanced by the saxophone of Tony Rico and Lliane's vocals.
We had visited in person once during my studies when he lectured at the seminary. And so when I wrote about doing a phone interview for my dissertation, he graciously agreed, which I not so graciously screwed up because of the time zone difference.
I still have the audio of that conversation, Fred chiding me, before we talked preaching. Not too many years later he was in Kansas City, speaking at a conference hosted by Church of the Brethren, Stealin Time - Kenny Craddock - Mad As The Mist And Snow (CD). I would have registered for the conference but I was going to be out of town for all but the first night. In my attempts to talk my way in, I told the man on the phone I had done my dissertation on Craddock and that I would be bringing some students.
He said it would be fine. When he called my name, my Stealin Time - Kenny Craddock - Mad As The Mist And Snow (CD) got big as saucers. I feared a public chiding this time. Instead, Fred graciously smiled and waved. I explained the misunderstanding afterwards and we both laughed.
We would remember that incident many years later as well. The highlight of my professional life, however, came when Fred agreed to have me and Richard Ward edit the collection called Craddock Stories.
People have sometimes asked how that came about. It started when Richard and I were leading a workshop for preachers and Fred was in the hospital with a serious life-threatening illness. Several of the pastors had heard and inquired, which led to everyone sharing their favorite Craddock story. Hardly any of us finished telling whatever story had occurred to us because someone would interrupt before it was over. But what about the one where….
I wrote to him later, suggesting how it could be done. We agreed to talk about it the next time he was back in Kansas City. Believe it or not, there would be an even better moment as the book was coming to completion. I had listened to hundreds of sermon tapes, read every printed sermon I could get my hands on, and now we had the stories collected. The problem all along had been how they would be organized.
On this particular visit to Cherry Log, Georgia, Stealin Time - Kenny Craddock - Mad As The Mist And Snow (CD) Fred and Nettie had retired to, Richard and I sat on the back deck with him after dinner. Then came the oral examination. He agreed. Before I could finish sharing that, I suddenly wondered if we might do something similar but with a twist. We stayed in touch over the years, and not just when he was in Kansas City with me to introduce him. I did one presentation with him at Candler School of Theology, and what a treat that was.
He and Nettie invited me to dinner that evening. That was when we learned we shared the same wedding anniversary date, June 9. In what turned out to be the last few months of his life I shared how we were expecting our first grandchild, and they talked about their first great grandchild. During the Christmas holidays and then again after the first of this year, I visited with Nettie on the phone, only to learn Fred was in the hospital again.
I said that maybe it was better I checked with her first anyway. I knew Fred would appreciate the positive emphasis, and that his health would not allow him to participate. She suggested I call back.
