A Brown Road Campfire

Hi gang, sorry I haven’t been around much the last couple months. I’ve been busy displaying my awesomeness in ways other than being a world-famous blogger. I promise there are some things in the works and that I will be back soon. Until then, in the spirit of Summer which is finally here and warm campfires on crisp, clear, starry nights, here’s a pretty epic old post from Summer of 2011 when this blog was a younger version of itself and which many of you have probably never had the privilege of experiencing.

So that you can vicariously enjoy the whole Brown Road experience and since I can’t think of anything to write about, here’s me singing a campfire song, including all of the outside bird and peeper sounds from the swamp behind us! One of the critters got so loud towards the end, I think maybe it was sitting right underneath me. Maybe it was singing along. I laughed because I thought it sounded like one of those combination music and nature sounds CD’s you can buy.

Sweet Baby James is one of my favorite songs.  My Mom sang it to me to help me fall asleep when I was a baby. I don’t really remember that, but I imagine that’s where it all started. My parents had a copy of the James Taylor album that this song was originally recorded on and I would listen to it all the time.

If you’d like, here’s a video I found on youtube of a crackling campfire, that you can look at as well!

You should play them both at the same time to really get the full effect! You may have to adjust the volume settings on the videos to watch them together, the crackling fire is pretty loud.

Have fun at the Brown Road campfire!

  1. I loved that album – it had all sorts of good songs on it, too. It’s somewhere in my vinyl collection of 12″ disc wrapped in cardboard. He could sing, you can, too. Makes me yearn for a campfire. I’m gonna have to wait a few weeks before it happens. In the meantime, I am gonna listen to Alice Cooper – “school’s out……” One more day….

  2. I’ve been hooked on a temporary JT station on Sirius radio. This song is one of those with that magical quality: it never gets old. Thanks for the re-run and the . campfire. Happy summer!

  3. One of my favorites too. Enjoy the summer!

  4. Playing both videos at the same time is pretty cool. Very nice, sir, very nice.

  5. I love that song! I often listen to JT. Summers over, dude. Time to start posting again.. and I’ll see you on facebook. 🙂
