Song of the Day # 607 David Wiffen

'Well it just takes one step, to start a journey. No matter how far you may go...'

Very much of its time, and that's a long way back now, the first track of Canadian singer songwriter David Wiffen's debut solo album, released in 1971. You know exactly where you are with this within twenty seconds at the point where Wiffen's voice cuts in. It's wistful North American music, vaguely folk, vaguely country, smoky, impossibly deep vocals, (and worth of attention in that respect alone), thoughtful, romantic sentiments. A country cousin of Fred Neil and Nilsson's Everybody's Talkin'.
