My favorite song on the album too, Jerry. The singled out Warde Ford happens to be my favorite singer on tha album, but Robert Walker gets the prize obscure gem of a song. "We Are Anchored By The Roadside" may sound like the title of some hymn, but of course it's not. It's two drunken buddies reminiscing of pre-prohibition days when booze was more readily available, and I'm glad to see someone else besides me, other than Joe Hickerson, who recorded it on "Drive Dull Care Away" on Folk Legacy, knows of this fine song. Once again, Jerry, you prove yourself a man of exquisite taste.
A record well worth seeking out.
