For my third open mic night appearance at the Bluebird Cafe, I decided to play a new song from my forthcoming as-yet-to-be-named album. "Summer of Love (1974)" is a story song in the tradition of Dylan and Springsteen about the year I dropped out of high school (flunked out really) and headed down the Jersey shore. I chose Wildwood, but it could be any one of the many shore towns, and the story of many of the kids who flocked there in the summer. The audience seemed to enjoy it, singing along which was a blast for me. I hope you enjoy it, too!
