Happy Birthday Mr K.

Leo Kottke [1971]


  1. I confess I don’t understand the meaning of this post’s title… it a Kottke-ism of some sort?


    1. Yes, I guess that’s exactly what it is.

      All the Cover Pairs posts aim to use a thematically relevant song title for the post’s title. “The Driving of the Year Nail” is the first track on the 1971 album “6 and 12 String Guitar” (see the feature image of this post).

      I thought it could be interpreted as regret – or even pain – at the arrival of another birthday (in this case Mr Kottke’s). But maybe that is just how I see birthdays!


  2. Any excuse to feature Leo is a good one.
