Ahmen, Michael. I don't stand for bigotry anywhere, except to stand up and walk out!

The very, very, very First recording of "Mr. Bojangles", by Jerry Jeff Walker, was made live, on the Pacifica radio station, WBAI, in New York, back in the sixties, on Bob Fass' late night talk/music program. I have a reel to reel tape of that performance, just Jerry and his guitar. It was mesmerizing! Bob was blown away, as were we all. All he could say, when the song finished, was "Gee. Did you write that?" When the album came out, it was a little disappointing, because it was all dressed up with a violin section accompaniment. Worst of all, Bob Fass stopped playing his tape on the air.

The same is true of leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" and Arlo's "Alice's Restaurant".
