Here’s the versatile Dave Mason doing an acoustic version of one of his better known songs:
Mason was an original member of Traffic and went on to have a long solo career, often collaborating with other artists. He’s one of those guys you don’t realize you know that much about. Now here’s a guy you do realize you know a lot about, Phil Collins:
Boy, No Jacket Required was a very different album than Face Value and Hello, I Must Be Going, wasn’t it? I remember being kind of disappointed by it back in the day, because I really loved the first two albums and didn’t care for the more pop-infused direction Collins went. Looking back on it now, I like it more than I did then, but a part of me still wishes he’d continued exploring the turf he covered previously. I guess you have to go where the muse takes you.
