Apples in the Basket
Here is Gordon's latest album which is a collection of many of your most requested favorites including Apples in the Basket and Hills of Isle Au Haut. "Here is a trawl through some of the songs that have engaged my life these last few years. You'll notice a lot of textures here: these songs bring us some interesting lives and beliefs and perspectives, and I am grateful that they've come to inform my own."





The reason I sing so many other people's songs (authors known or unknown) is that the songs teach me how other folks have met and coped with the wold, and I am perhaps wiser and certainly more human for having lived with their music in my days and nights.

Here's a trawl through some of the songs that have engaged my life these last few years. You'll notice a lot of textures here: these songs bring us some interesting lives and beliefs and perspectives, and I am grateful that they've come to inform my own.

I am grateful, too, for all the musician friends who have given their time and spirit so generously to help me here: Doreen Conboy, Elmer Beal, Ann Dodson, Matt Szostak, Will Brown, Cindy Kallet, Bruce Boege, Ken Gross, and the light of my heart, Carol Rohl.

We're the ones you hear now, but there's a thousand more we've sung with and learned from, whose voices give strength to our own, and whose lives have nourished ours.

APPLES IN THE BASKET

Where possible, I print the oldest sources I have of these songs, no matter how much they differ from the versions that came to me.


The first two months of the year are my time for making albums; luckily, we recorded most of this music in January and February of 2003 and 2004. When it came time for the final production work, we were in the third month of Carol's recovery from a stroke.

Pulling the album together has been a welcome focus during these early weeks of 2005. We're reminded once again that if you really want to do something, don't put it off.


Apples in the Basket
1978 JB Goodenough

Judy sent me this a long time ago and I sang it for a couple of years, but I think I needed a lot more miles on my odometer to really appreciate it. When we sing it, it brings my brother Tony close, and it has become one of our most requested songs.
Gordon - Spanish guitar
Carol - vocal
Doreen - bass viol

The sun comes over the top of the hill
Shines on the fields I've yet to till
My bones are weary but I know I will
And not just because you ask it
Rake and hoe on twenty-penny nails
Milk lies sweet in a dozen pails
Hay piled up in a hundred bales
And apples in the basket

A house that's tight to the wind and snow
A barn that's full of the things we grow
Empty purse, but I don't owe
A thing to any man living
A woman warm, a woman kind
A woman that knows her own sweet mind
A woman that knows just what's behind
The things that she's forgiven

There's branches on the family tree
A boy, a girl and the baby's three
They look like her, they look like me
Like folk that's dead and gone now
But I don't care, we're all the same
There's none to bless and none to blame
We're doing in the family's name
The work we carry on now

The old grey goose is on the wing
But he'll be back again next spring
Each year we do the same old thing
And the same old wheel goes spinning
When the air is warm and the earth is sweet
And the good clean dirt is on our feet
The circle comes around complete
And the end is the beginning
