February 27

Another birthday reminiscence for the late David Ackles, a songwriter's songwriter. From 1968 to 1973, he only released four albums, but his lyrics inspired a generation of songwriters, including Elvis Costello, Elton John, Bernie Taupin, and Phil Collins. I found this fan video for Ackles' 1968 song "Road to Cario"; the music holds up pretty well, I think. I'm hearing Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave...
