    I have been listening to Batdorf & Rodney for over 30+ years- their music, lyrics, and guitar always seem to bring me to tears….so beautiful! Simply the best……(heavy sigh….) 🙂

    • John Batdorf

      Thanks for the kind words!

    I have to agree. So magical. I just finished listening to “Can You See Him” again and its hard to explain how it seems to light my brain on fire and send shivers of pleasure through me. I sent the link to the song to my daughter. I just can’t imagine anyone not having the pleasure of experiencing this.

    • John Batdorf

      Music can be pure magic. I am so glad the song still affects you in that special way!

    “Home Again” from the first Batdorf & Rodney album has been one of my all time favorite songs. That was nearly 50 years ago and it’s still great! Thanks, John!

    • John Batdorf

      Thanks Barry. One thing however, Off The Shelf was our first album in 1971 and this album was released in 1972. Glad you found yourself Home Again!

    I cannot remember the exact year that I saw Batdorf and Rodney, but I think it was 1973 at the Civic Center in Salem, VA. I had never heard of them before – they were the backup band – but they left a huge impression on me. Remember, I had never seen them before, but I remember distinctly the last song they played was Let Me Go. I could not get that beautiful intro and Mark’s melody on the interlude out of my mind. My local record shop did not have Off The Shelf, so I bought their second “Batdorf and Rodney” album. I had never heard acoustic guitars played, produced, or recorded that way – ever. I loved electric music of the era…but THIS WAS DIFFERENT. (Don’t get me started on the string arrangements!) I was hooked…and I’ve been hooked for 46 years. When I want to bask in the feeling of clean, clear, positive, complex, harmonious, well recorded, well performed music John and Mark’s music is on my short list.
