We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I feel that Roger didn't do it rough enuf because he is too sweet of a guy, too happy a guy (reborn Christian for a long time) but this is all good. Yes, it was Pete Seeger who put the Ecclesiastes bit to song.
What a gem. Thanks for sharing, BD. There's no end of inspiration to be found in turning scripture into song. Here's another recent sample from an album called Revenant Psalms. With your folk leanings, I thought you might like it.
The brilliant Chris Hillman, easy to forget that he was a founding member of the Byrds, it seems not to dominate his career. The Hillmen, the Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, Desert Rose Band, Souther-Hillman-Furay Band, touring with Herb Pederson, records with Tony Rice. Man, what a talent, and by all reports a fine man. The Byrds seem almost incidental. He's a national treasure.
snopercod, I had the same question. It appears the sync of video and sound is off slightly, and nobody's hands look remotely like they're playing what I'm hearing. I don't see any 12 string. The harmonies are so good, I suspect there was a backing track added to the performance, even though the vocals are clearly mic'ed.
Thanks BD for a nostalgic trip through the smoke rings.
