    There's a record by Bessie Smith called: "On Revival Day," that I have on 78rpm. Does anyone know if a 45rpm version by Bessie Smith was ever released. The 45rpm version that I have is by LaVern Baker, I love it.

  5. He's a great story teller. That's the kind of music & story telling you get at Cowboy gatherings.

    I found the song title intriguing and he did not disappoint.
    I am sure you've heard this one

  7. I used to participate on the old songwriters forum & the meaning to the lyrics on "Pancho..." among others were discussed endlessly. "Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harum was another. Deep, deep stuff.

    Whiter Shade of Pale is one of my favorite songs. I just love it.
    Have you seen this orchestra version?
    It is wonderful

  9. Yes. I always liked the 4th verse which adds much mystic to the lyrics, but was cut from the commercial version due to length. Definitely a classic.

    My Mom used to play Burl Ives all the time from the time I was born- I grew up being a huge fan of his, even though he's a couple of generations removed from mine.
    Is he too old for your taste?
    He tells good stories too.

  11. Not really familiar with his lyrics. I like song lyrics that have something to say but leaving some mystic about them & open to interpretation. Anyone can write lyrics using a rhyming dictionary.

    Ah. Yes, I understand what you mean. Like in Don McLean's American Pie

  13. So do you think it was Pancho or Lefty living in a cheap hotel in Cleveland?

    Both. Lefty is Pancho.
