Such great vocals from Brian and musical performances from all three. Brian undersells himself when he describes himself as a "campfire musician". That's probably the best non-record-company Lightfoot cover I've heard.

Holy cow. One of the best imitations ever. A little bit off in some of the phrasing, but so spot-on in other places that you'd think it was the man himself. I'm impressed.

Thank you Dave, and Char for the kind comments. It's always fun to work with Jim and Bob.

some may find the bootleg of interest, this is what the recording evolved from

soon after killed the piano, as it was stepping all over the lovely vocal phrases
