England's a democracy now, relatively rare among the nations in the world.

Many countries face similar isssues, military control or democracy.

The world is my country,
all mankind are my brethren,
and to do good is my religion.”

serendipity redux
It's not easy to pick just one of Steve's songs, as they cover such a range of styles; so perhaps this one chose itself because a) I'm possibly an unreconstructed folkie at heart, and b) it's July 4th. Oh, and I've been listening to Neil Young recently

The Gatekeeper
perhaps one of Steve's best newer releases of late. On this adventure he captures some of that Dylanequse vibe.some stellar bass work, fine guitar and refreshing piano chops happening. he has ventured to working some better chordal transitions and progressions and works in a nice bridge too. What I really notice here is the solid vocals staying within his range and a noticeable improvement in pitch with no wavering , this key works for him well. its a wonderful work he shares and he travels with you on a historical journey. great ballad and well produced. one of his best releases of the year and in my opinion one of the top 3 of the many he has done
