I love GL's music and have enjoyed his concerts tremendously. If and when he comes to my area, I will not miss the concert. It's fair to say he is my all-time favorite performer.

I don't hear any rock'n'roll in it, either. Seems even more country than most, and such is the subject matter of the song. Are you sure it's "Cotton Jenny" you're thinking of?

I think "Spin, Spin" and "Movin'" are both great songs, and...

I think he's saying that it trivializes GL's near-death experience to refer to the event as "trivia".

"Oh, Linda" (from Lightfoot! in 1966) is played using only an upright bass and the snapping of fingers. Cool song.
