Thread Name: Tune Req: Michael (Robert Service, Greg Artzner)
Subject: RE: Michael by Greg Antzner
Greg and Terry set the Robert Service poem to music at the suggestion of Utah Phillips, who had recorded the spoken poem on his I've Got to Know album. Greg and Terry wrote the setting as a gift to Utah and included it on the Singing Through the Hard Times set. It's also one of the highlights of the most recent Magpie album.
Greg and Terry are fantastic musicians and great folks.
