This is by far my favorite song of the hundreds of songs Jimmy has written or sung since the mid-seventies. I put forty to stern ten years ago, but the song still has a special meaning not only to me, but my twenty-one year old daughter as well.
This is a great song that I wanted to include on my web site. It’s about Eric’s friend Bob Bitchin. Bob is editor and chief of the greatest sailing life style magazine to date. I have been a subscriber for years.
Pirates and Poets is one of my favorite songs even though it wasn’t an internationally played song when the album came out many years ago. Bertie is not only a superb songwriter, but also matches the music perfectly to go with the words.
Key Largo was one of Bertie’s biggest hits in the eighties and I actually have his first few albums on vinyl. I guess that dates me as to how long I’ve been listening to his music. If it’s a bad day or a good day, Bertie’s music always makes it a better day.
