The word “epic” probably gets bandied about a bit too much. It seems appropriate, however, when discussing Kevin Gordon’s “Colfax/Step in Time.”
With a brilliant literary style, Gordon chronicles a young boy in the South during the 1970’s. As the song progresses, he touches on everything from young lust to the dark side of the region’s struggle with civil rights.
This live performance, from our friends at Music Fog, showcases the song’s potent lyrics with a downright nasty musical finish.
