Rare Trax: Lindsay Mac "His Dreams"

Every Saturday at BMF we present rare or deep tracks from my collection for your listening pleasure, or perhaps for your amusement!

This week’s track is “His Dreams” by Lindsay Mac from her 2008 album, “Stop Thinking”. Lindsay is an innovative writer and performer – she tells vivid stories with her lyrics and plucks or strums the cello in her music. “His Dreams” is a poignant tale of a boy lured away from the family farm through the backdoor draft to fight in the war. She pulls no punches and her haunting vocal will give you chills. Be sure to check out the rest of her album for more, including a cover of “Blackbird”.
