Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife “Not Like A Brother” – Listen

The second single from ‘You Be the Lightning‘, the fifth album by Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife could not be more West Coast Rock if it had actually fallen fully formed off a flowering Rumours tree (genus Fleetwood Maccus).  It captures not just the sound but the smooth mood of that era, with lyrics dreamily sung and yet infused with a passionate core “Strike me down, make me stay / Can’t feel the thunder in my heart these days / You be the lightning running through my veins / I wanna feel you, I wanna feel you, wanna know you / Not like a brother.”

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?
