Billy Weeks Origins: Creeping Jane (46) RE: Origins: Creeping Jane 29 May 05

This is opinion and nothing more, since I have no incontrovertible facts to offer in support, but I can't go along with the (admittedly tentative)thought referred to above that this might be a stage song. A fair number of songs that found their way into collector's notebooks actually originated in or at least spent a significant phase of their lives in the theatre or on the variety stage, but Creeping Jane doesn't have the least touch of stagey polish. I can't define precisely what I mean by polish but I think I know when it isn't there.
