A beautiful live version of “Running Blind”.
“But all night long I would stare
at all the moon and the stars I could bear
Then from daylight on
It would tear through my heart
It went tearing its way through my heart
Tearing its way through my heart”
From 1980, Michael Hedges covers Joni Mitchell’s “You Turn Me On I’m A Radio”.
I’m so happy to see these videos of Michael on YouTube. My heart breaks as he is not with us anymore.
Beautiful live version. Song originally was on “Watching My Life Go By”
I think he had a wonderful voice. RIP Michael.
A wonderful live version.
I love it at the start of the video where he stops himself to tune and says “Tune Yourself”!
A great live version
From the album, “Watching My Life Go By” (1985)
This album was a car trip album during my college years, great times.
People throw out the phrase “musical genius”, but few performers are worthy of the title. Michel Hedges is certainly worthy.
Michael was an incomparable composer, performer, instrument innovator, and singer. He is greatly missed. Rest in peace, Michael.
