The Cactus Blossoms “Got A Lotta Love” – Listen

The Cactus Blossoms are Minneapolis-based brother duo Page Burkum and Jack Torrey, and this laid back love song, co-written with Dan Auerbach, belies it’s smooth and easy mood  – the song actually came together really quickly (if one puts to one side the several months gestation it went through!).  Whilst visiting Dan Auerbach’s Nashville studio the brothers hit a jolt of inspiration, pulled out a melody they’d been kicking around for a whilke, found it was a good fit and had the song complete in the matter of a quarter of an hour.  It can be found on their soon to be released ‘Easy Way‘ album.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
