Thread Name: Lyr Add: Chicago Bust Rag (from Steve Goodman)
Subject: RE: Beatnik, Prevert, don't talk that way to me!
Anybody know if this recording is still available? There is so much Steve Goodman stuff out, you'd think every word he ever sang would be on CD.
Too bad so much of Steve's popularity came after his death. My stockbroker brother was a booking agent in Southeastern Wisconsin until he turned 40 and thought he should turn into a grownup. He booked Steve Goodman many times - but always as an opener for some better-known act (often Kristofferson). My brother said Steve always stole the show, no matter who it was he performed with. I never got a chance to see him, maybe because I was too busy being a grown-up Daddy with kids. I think maybe a number of us missed a lot of good music during the years we were busy being parents.
So, anyhow, is the recording available on CD?
