Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Greg Brown's 'Ring Around The Moon'
I second that. Cindy Mangsen recorded it on one of her solo LPs, and has also recorded it with husband Steve Gilette on their (I think most recent) duo CD. Great song! Great cover of it!

Kat, if you don't know Cindy's music, you should make an effort to get some. She is a fine singer, equally comfortable with ancient, modal, traditional ballads and some of the newer material like the Greg Brown song. She doesn't write a lot (that I know of), but has written one memorable and magical song about the aboriginal Dreamtime Land that's worth the cost of the CD by itself.
