John Hartford - Looks At Life mp3 album

He started writing prolifically, got signed to RCA and, with the t added to his last name, made his first album, John Hartford Looks at Life. It sold well enough that he went on to make a second, Earthwords & Music, which featured a song inspired by the film Dr. Zhivago called Gentle on My Mind. As Hartford explained it to me years later, RCA signed me because they thought I could be their Bob Dylan.

The Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. We’re blown away by the brainpower and amazing ideas sparked by The Hartford’s Codeathon .

Album Lady Bird (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture). This Eve of Parting Lyrics. It's hard to think this eve of parting Turns to sand of summer gone When both our minds are warped with parting Break the thought of nights alone.

For you can't really tell whether Hartford, a master of understatement, is subverting both country and pop conventions with his laconic wit, penning lyrics that would have risked outright rejection by big label A&R departments had they not come from the hand of someone who'd established himself as a bankable property with "Gentle on My Mind.
