Can’t See the Forest

From the Rise and Fall of the Cardboard Empire….
I dunno. These guys are from one of my hometowns (Winnipeg, Manitoba), they have a load of songs considered classics and produced a huge catalogue of music in various genres. Yet I seldom acknowledge their existence. I think they were the kind of band that people hated to love and loved to hate – yet they did some amazing stuff. And certainly have Roman legions of fans.
This song is not well known, comes from an excellent album (#10) and I think is one of the best songs by TGW. If you dissect it from most every angle you’ll probably agree (musically and lyrically). My only regret is that Winter’s twin overdubbed guitar solo wasn’t longer. What a shame!
RIP Mr Kurt Winter
