GUEST,WYS Jerry Rasmussen, I need you! (32) RE: Jerry Rasmussen, I need you! 19 Mar 03

Sorry, that Guest was me. I was just kiddin' ya Jerry. We do as many verses as seem right, or we just keep adding more repeats of the chorus, dsepending on how the singing is going. But I think the 3-minute limit comes partly from how we learn the old classics-- from a recording. These were made for radio, where a 3-minute limit was usual. As we know from the spirituals, some songs could originally have gone on all afternoon long, in the field.
