That was the first version I ever heard of OLG and I immediately liked it.  It probably remains my favorite rendition.

Yeah. The whole thing is great. That's why I've worked to get it back out - for those who have never heard it.

I love the loping easy pace of this version.  You can actually hear and understand the terrific lyrics!   And the various confident percussion makes it all even better.   Outstanding.

Me and Al played it this morning, and were reminded of how well it succeeds at this tempo. It's a great recording.

the CD arrived yesterday. What a treat! Takes me back to the first time I heard Joe & Co. play at Harpers Ferry circa 1990.

Roberta, here is another taster from the record.

I suspect this is just about as close as it gets to how it sounded then.  I am going to get the CD.
