Memorial Day Non Sequitur Blogging

And having absolutely no thematic relationship to today's holiday whatsoever, from 1988, please enjoy the incomparable Leo Kottke -- speaking as we have been for the last week or two of the whole one-guy-singing-with-just-a-guitar thing -- and a stunning live performance of his 1971 classic "Hear the Wind Howl."

The song originally appeared on Mudlark, Kottke's major label studio album debut, in a version about twice as fast. This one's still viscerally exciting, though.
