Pearls Before Swine :: Island Lady

“Island Lady”, via Pearls Before Swine’s 1971 album Beautiful Lies You Could Live In, was described by its author, über-hippie turned civil rights lawyer Tom Rapp as “starkly bleak” in the liner notes to a later live collection (The Wizard of Is.) Yet, in starkness, even in bleakness, there can sometimes be beauty. Though it’s a far cry from romantic songs such as its almost-namesake Crosby, Stills and Nash’s “Lady of the Island,” it shares that song’s quiet gentleness . . .
