Paul Weller - The Ballad Of Jimmy McCabe


Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

I'll never 'ave a beard!
Paul Weller - The Ballad Of Jimmy McCabe (2017)

Paul Weller is a legend. Fact. However, for me, he can be a bit hit or miss.  This track though smacks of his brilliant best.  It features on his first-ever full film score / soundtrack project, entitled JAWBONE. It's a boxing film and "The Ballad of Jimmy McCabe" is a tender moment that catches the main characters emotional state. "I'll beat my head 'til dawn / Figure out what I'm running from / Only then will I find peace in me." Probably not a daddy - daughter type of movie.

It seems it might be a busy year for the Modfather as he will be releasing his 13th solo studio album, A Kind of Revolution in the spring.

I've got massive admiration for Weller. Still restless and throwing curve balls this far down the line. Excellent tune.

SFW - the track is excellent just needs Mark Knofler to be on guitar and I would be drooling
