Final song of the week: Needle in the Hay 

Final song of the week....You've heard it as an upbeat folk/rock tune in Two Out Rally, with country tinge on the SOBOTS record, the "Synth version" on the 'Love is the Other Side of the Fence EP', you've heard the electrified version of the current Commas configuration; now "Needle in the Hay" gets the piano arrangement... https://soundcloud.com/talking-about-commas/needle-in-the-hay-live

Look for a duet with Allysen Callery, my take on Lucinda Williams' "I just wanted to see you so Bad", the brand new original song "Hayes Valley Falcon" and my first "Loving Cup" on piano to close the show.
