Words to a GL story

I have a cd (I think it's the Red Rocks show) where Gordon tells a story about some Chinese folks. It's a bit racy. I'm wondering if any of you know the words and can post them. One of the lines goes...

Snow Blind Friend

I seem to recall hearing GL do Hoyt Axton's song "Snow Blind Friend" in concert a long time ago. Do any of the rest of you remember any such thing?

Re: Just a thought about Carter doing Miquel

How ironic on the youtube clip of this song that the only guitar work they feature is some of Rick's bass playing while Red Shea is doing such fabulous intricate work on lead guitar!

Re: Canadian Music-Lightfoot-50 years

It never ceases to amaze me how Red Shea plays those unbelievable licks and yet never looks at his guitar when he's playing.

Guitar Changes

When I first saw GL over 40 years ago, he was playing a Martin D-35. In the 1972 BBC concert, he's playing a D-28. Now, when he plays a 6 string, it's a pretty worn D-18.

Anyone have any idea...
