Subject: RE: Mister Bojangles
Does anyone know where the 1 1/2 minute audio intro to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band come from? If the song isn't about a more-or-less famous person, how or more appropriately, why, would anyone record that.
Not that I'm any sort of expert but it doesn't sound to me like it's an actor. And it also sounds like there's definately someone else in the room who is being addressed by the possible "Bojangles". It also sounds like there might be a cut, or and edit, in the recording.
He talks about his dog and the dog is also part of the audio. Of course I don't need to point out the lyrics about the guys dog.
I think that's all.
