Listen: I Walk On Guilded Splinters / Marsha Hunt 01 I Walk On Guilded Splinters
As much as I love Dr. Johnâ€™s version of â€˜I Walk On Guilded Splintersâ€™, I love Marsha Huntâ€™s even more. The voice. Plain and simple. Much can be said about her interesting life. Letâ€™s start with this fact: she moved to London and in â€˜67 needed a visa – so she married Mike Ratledge of The Soft Machine. Thereâ€™s more, but just go to Wikipedia for all that. Iâ€™m nuts about her handful of singles, and amazing pipes. My Dr. John post below suddenly reminded me I needed to hear Marshaâ€™s version. That agonizing howl at the very end of the song proves it all.
