Man, I just went nuts when I heard Richard Geiger's "Back to the Roots". http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=53481

My foot started stomping like nobody's business.

I went right to the microphone and laid this down. Hopefully he will enjoy this tribute as much as I had fun...going "Back to my Roots!"

All music by Richard Geiger (wicked guitar)

"I may be a bit older, but I sure ain't dead" No you are not -- you are jammin! Great tune and amazing performance. Love the layered vocals near the end. You should be proud of your roots.

I loved this tune... now I LOVE it. I didn't know that Babs had a bit of them Ozark Mountain blood in him... and Richard... is there a Hillbilly area in Germany? Actually, this reminds me of Taylor era Stones. That's the best compliment I can give you two. This is download worthy if any song is!

Taking a second listen and paying more attention to the great lyrics, it is reminiscent of the Stones best work (when they went looking for that Sweet Virginia) on Exile on Main Street.
This is Exile on Babboon's land. smileyB

Love that sweet, sweet sound. Almost everything that can be said about this is already written, so I won't repeat - but I love it!

As a funny side note, I was reading along with the lyrics and thought it said, "Come on you West Viagra". Guess we're all getting older.
