  • gibsongirl Folks, who can help with the lyrics from David's song "Guitar Man" - specifically first line of third verse? Here's what we've got so far: Oh hear the band, oh clap you hands Go tell your friends here comes the guitar man Guitar! Been hurt, getting down, word getting round Love that sound, come from the guitar town Guitar! [......................................], stand in the spotlight Wait every night to take guitar out One more, guitar! Oh hear the band, oh clap your hands Go tell your friends here comes the guitar man Guitar!

  • JasonK Nashville story 2015 Frank Hamrick I walked down Broadway past a string of bars open early Friday afternoon. Four of the clubs had live bands playing Merle Haggard covers. Three of them were performing “Mama Tried”. Sandwiched among faux, Nash Vegas honkytonks and urban cowboy outfitters; in a narrow downtown Nashville building was Hatch Show Print, a letterpress shop that had been in business since 1879. The first ten feet deep inside was devoted to selling broadsides, monoprints, restrikes and postcards. Tourists flipped through bins of surplus commemorative concert posters searching for prints of their favorite stars. On the other side of a counter that divided the storefront from the rest of the building were a dozen folks dedicated to using hand carved imagery and hundred-year-old wooden letters to design and print posters. This felt much different than staring past the menu into the kitchen at a Burger King. A tattooed woman with Betty

  • RunningRattie It's been a while since I really dug into the bootlegs I've saved over the years, but understandably, the lack of live shows AND the emergence old unreleased tunes have put me back in that head space. I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of folk music, and understand even less about the technical side of where to even find these things (bootlegs) let alone upload and share them. Point being, I started thinking about how much of my wealth of Gillian and David knowledge I owe to the tireless efforts of sponwed . He provided an embarrassment of riches for those of us who would never have freakin' figured it out on our own. I know the blog has been out of commission for some time, but I remain grateful and so very appreciative of his efforts!! (L)

  • bluegrassgal Thanks for your comments re: Knuckleball, but for some reason I can't reply to the thread and the page keeps crashing. Will listen to the unreleased stuff when my PC stops playing up.
