Ben Bedford....The Hermit’s Spyglass
This album tells a day in the life of Ben and Darwin the Cat in a farmhouse (“The Hermitage”),a proper little house on the prairie (Illinois).
Some of the tracks are short — opener Morning Rise is only 1:20), and he gulps Morning Coffee in the same time. Some are instrumental, such as The Mule And The Horse. Opener Morning Rise is not about getting up and out, but tells of sitting on a little rise.
The lyrics tell similar simple stories but with a rustic charm.
