      Spaceman,
      I know this song because of Peter, Paul and Mary. This is the first time I’ve heard James Taylor’s version. I like it a lot, but then again I’ve always been a Sweet Baby James fan!.

    Beautiful song

  3. Spaceman Says:

    With Mark O’Conner on the fiddle. Something interesting I learned recently about O’Conner; he apprenticed on violin with Stephane Grapelli, who is an extraordinary jazz violin player. Reinhardt/Grapelli if you like oldy guitar/violin stuff

    Well then, they all pretty much crazy down that-a-way. Aiiieeee!

  5. Spaceman Says:

    A little more JT. But mighty tough to compare with Glen Campbell on this tune. Baby James is stretching it here

    • Kat Says:

      Spaceman,
      JT’s voice is perfect for this song. I think he does a great job. Before I heard this, I would have preferred Glen; now I’m wavering.

  6. Spaceman Says:

    I dunno about that, I think it was Campbell’s best along with Galveston. Better give some mulling. Now Jame’s style was perfectly suited for Johnny’s gone for a Soldier.

    And small point of order, you can’t see overloads. Have to give the non-techies a lyrical pass

    • Kat Says:

      Spaceman,
      My all time favorite Campbell song is By the Time I get to Phoenix. I think it his best.

      Overload-the whole thing never entered my mind at all.
