Dave Earl and the Blues...

While DH and I were in San Francisco in March this year, we spent a lot of time down at the Embarcadero which is the eastern waterfront and roadway area of the city. It's a lovely area with beautiful gardens, piers with interesting shops etc and of course those seals at Pier 39.

A bit of topiary here

There were lots of buskers and one guy in particular impressed me with his music. We saw him a couple of times and I decided that I wanted to take some of his music home so I bought 2 of his CDs. His name was Dave Earl and here is his webpage with a sample of his blues music.
I uploaded this CD to my iPod when I got home and found the music on it to be a perfect   accompaniment for when I ride my exercise bike. On the days that I play Dave Earl, the half hour just goes in a flash. The Shadows album is also pretty good, as is the Blues brothers and Suzi Quatro...but Dave is the best! :-)
