I mentioned earlier this morning how pleased I was that, during their 25th anniversary reunion concert, The Seekers went out of their way to talk about Malvina Reynolds and how they loved her songs. So, I thought it only proper to post a few videos that show why I liked that. And it'll help fill in the time until I get a chance to post again.
Malvina Reynolds was a folksinger and songwriter, though she's probably much better known for her songs. She didn't have a strong voice, but its uniqueness and her quality of interpretation made her a treasure. Happily, I had a chance to see her perform live at the Ravinia Summer Music Festival when I was a little kid. )I think it was a children's concert.)
This first video (though just an audio recording) is probably her best-known song that has been recorded by a great many singers. But there's something so tender about her own version that's joyous. It's the song, "Turn Around." I suspect most of you will know it.
