I didn't discover the Mudcat until a couple of years after Dave was gone. My wife and I had just seen Dave and Tracey open for Tom Paxton and Anne Hills at the Ark in Ann Arbor, MI. I had been stunned by their recordings as played by Matt Watroba on his Folks Like Us broadcast out of Detroit, and was anxious to see them live. They were wonderful. It was the first time I had heard "Gentle Soldier of my Soul", which I still find absolutely stunning. A week later I tuned in Matt's broadcast and learned Dave was gone.
