Long Black Veil Quotes by Jennifer Finney Boylan
Belayed James on it first but it still felt onsight. Almost off when a foot hold crumbled near the top! Brilliant route. Super psyched to get back on this soon! First outing at Masson. Not a bad little crag!! Nice scenes there today too!!

Stunning route and really chuffed to get it. Probably shouldn't really count as an onsight because the chalk was immensely helpful. Occasionally had to wonder where to put my feet but the next good handhold was very rarely in doubt. Cool route, feels about the same grade as Exo6. A nice soft 7a, with no hard moves, but lots of them all the way to the chains with penny.
Lovely route, can see why it has some stars, flows very nicely, glad I got it on my first go with KarenW , ChrisC. Only just clean Superb and sustained.
Skin of my teeth. One of the best in the quarry. Excellent crimp yarding on well set holds. Grabbed the belay which apparently is naughty.

Need to have a go leading this with Neil. Ran out of juice at the surprising finish.
Quick rest then got it with Paolo Peirini. Really nice climb. The best of the wall so far. Will go next time. Currently bone dry and pretty good.

Hard for me. Class wall. Went for a flash burn on this. Was all going pretty well but could feel my fingers getting colder and colder. Lost grip just coming out of the crux near the top and took a big fall. Lost my head a bit after that so moved on. Excellent route. Put the clips in and went for RP.
Managed to clip last clip but came off when foothold broke as I dicked about on the final moves. Went next time. The song - like much of their work - is a contemporary deliberate creation of a mythologically American piece. Boat and Big Bad John in March Dill and Wilkin set out to make it sound like an old Appalachian ballad so as to hang onto the coat tails of the then burgeoning folk music revival.
Within days of writing it, they got the then fast-fading country star Lefty Frizell to record the song in March with a line-up that included Grady Martin and Harold Bradley on guitars and Marijohn Wilkin on piano. The song fits the mood of the album perfectly it would have fit the next album too.
112th: Jennifer Finney Boylan's "Long Black Veil"
Frizell sounds pure country. The accents are in completely different places, the beat is lilting, the drums are played with brushes, and a faint pedal steel plays around in the background.
Every hick and hokey technique is on display, from hissing through the teeth on sibillants to a sincere gulp or two when the emotion of the words gets too much. Then turn to The Band. The sound and words may be country, but on closer examination none of the instrumentation is.
