Just listened to Frank Hovington's "Mean Old Frisco" into which he interjects a Greyhound bus verse. Most odd.

That's a  good find, Phil.  Frank Hovington was one of those musicians who had a way of doing unexpected things with familiar material.  I remember him going some places on "Railroad Bill" and "John Henry" that I never heard anyone else go.
And thanks, uncle bud, for the good words!
All best,
Johnm

What a great Burnside track...  funky!

Anyway, I decided to have a crack at it:

I realise that this is not the place for such but out of interest between 2004 and 2007 Weenies embarked upon many and varied discussions of Frank Hovington and his music...notably Mr Lowry.

Nice job, Frank!  Your time sounds so good and that pulse keeps thumping.  You make cross-note sound more versatile than it does a lot of times, too.  Singing strong as always.  Cool!
All best,

Nice take on the tune, Frank. So relaxed. I like the darker I chord vibe and the Crudupesque anti-V-chord. Agree with John, strong singing as well. I'd been thinking about going to crossnote on this, having felt a need to get in that tuning after listening to a bunch of Crudup on account of this thread. No need now!  :P

Thanks, guys - I really admire both the Vortis and Crudup recordings, so tried (irritatingly obviously, I thought) to make a nod to both...  Thanks for the compliments on the singing...  I wish I had lived in the whole thing a bit more...  Some of that is hard to scan the right way...
