Billy – 'cause I missed you and for lots of reasons

I missed the Billy Bragg concert, he played at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, the last weekend of Burning Man. I’ve always wanted to see him play and had to make a choice. Life is about choices as Billy reminds us in A New England and Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards (old version) (new version) which are anthems of mine. This song has only 56 words of verse, yet covers so much ground – the whole album Mr Love and Justice is well worth a listen. I could have drowned myself in this song the night of The Temple Burn – so it seems apt to post it for that and many other reasons. This was recorded last night at his sound check in North Carolina.
