When Woody Guthrie was singing hillbilly songs on a little Los Angeles radio station in the late 1930s he used to mail out a small mimeographed songbook to listeners who wanted the words to his songs. On the bottom of one page appeared the following: This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright #154085, for a period of 28 years, and anybody caught singin' it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of our'n, cause we don't give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, that's all we wanted to do - Pete Seeger, on Woody, June 67

Really a nice job, O'Muck.  Your vocal delivery avoids the backwards righteousness songs of "the struggle" sometimes have inflicted upon them.  Just a throroughly enjoyable rendition all the way around.
All best,
Johnm

I'll chime in too -- just terrific, my favorite vocal of yours by far, subtleties throughout.  So much so, I wish the vocal were more up front.

Thanks Mike. I also am a sucker for "Strangest Dream'  as well as a bunch of other "message" songs of the kind I grew up listening to. And thanks you too JohnM. Your seal of approval is always much valued. But Slack, you've got me really confused! Here I've been battling this freakin' sinus infection for a month and now you tell me its actually improving my singing! Holy Shit! What do I do now? Continue trying to get over it, or let it kill me because my singing will be better along the way to the grave? ;) Anyway I'll take compliments anyway I can get them so thanks, I'm glad you dug it. Much appreciated all. And a Happy New Year to everyone!
