    Thanks for the compliment. Methinks you're being way too kind........Opa John

Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

    Got it, thank you belly much. Ain't patronizin'. You got that been-there 40 year Camel Straights growl of sincerity working on this over a well played melody, Opa. This is the stuff.
    Be back when I get back. TTFN.

      You're very welcome. Outside of my sister, you're only about the second person who's ever asked for any of my stuff.



      And, actually it was Marlboros and Benson & Hedges, but I know what you mean. I had a cold/flu when I recorded it. You can tell that by the way it sounded every time I tried to hit those two low notes....."It's Alright"....I changed it to an octave higher in the last verse.

        Awesome voice! Damn nice rendition of the song.
        I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.I.K.F.C.E.S.C.Potato SocietySAWG

          Dylan covers can be remarkably hard to put your own imprimatur on, but you own this one
          Please give me talent and patience - lots and soon.

            Seriously goin into my playlist, thats a really cool rendition John, agree with Joe - You definitely have that 'been right through the ringer' quality to your voice.

              Dang, fellas! I really don't feel deserving of all of these accolades. I'll be 70 in about a month and you guys are making an old man feel pretty good right now. I'm getting flashbacks of when I was in my late 30s and early 40s when a friend and I used to entertain the "regulars" at a local pub every Saturday afternoon and of the fun we had and the kind remarks we both got back then. You guys have no idea how much your comments mean to me. Thanks again.....Opa John....

                Wow ... really nice. Like it better than Dylan ... kinda like the way Cash interpreted Dylan's stuff.

                  Opa,

                  I'm moving this thought over from VOMIT since you've graduated to a thread of your own !



                  I too was a little concerned, a few months ago, that my song list was full of tunes that are older than most people on this forum. And some, not only old, but obscure enough that even folks from our generation didn't recognize them. After all, there were hundreds of really great regional tunes that never "made it" to national play status simply because of timing, or promotion.



                  Then it hit me ! Those songs are like new tunes to most people. So, I don't refer to them as "oldies" now, and I even slip in a few originals, without mentioning that they are older than dirt. Although, I did tell one person I wrote a particular tune while I was on death row, before the governor gave me that pardon.



                  It is rather difficult to pull that with a Dylan tune though !!



                  Can't wait to hear your next offering .....

                  Paul

                    Agreed. Damn, that voice throws some amazing backlighting onto a song. Just been listening to it again. Fortunately, when I played it the first time it just opened up directly in my iTunes, so it's there to stay.
