Our 13-year-son is back from his three-week trip to the UK, complete with dirt from a Irish peat bog still under his nails.
His suitcase was packed full of souvenirs. There was something for his girlfriend, something for his best friend, something for Grandpa and even something for Mom and Dad.
Evan didn’t know I’d written about this when he chose this souvenir for me. But, no, he didn’t get to see Abbey Road. “The high school kids got to see that kind of stuff,” he said.
But I do love me some “Patches.” And I would like to see Abbey Road some day. So in that spirit …
“Let It Be,” Clarence Carter, from “Patches,” 1970. (The album link is to a 2-on-1 CD also featuring “The Dynamic Clarence Carter” from 1969.)
