Subject: RE: James Keelaghan's
I happened into a closeout at Artichoke music in Portland today. They were getting rid of the rest of their CDs and tapes CD's 2/$5 and tapes $.50.
In the pile was James Keelaghan/A Recent Future with this song on it. It's now in my pile.
Of the song, he says "This song is inspired by Norman McLean's book Ypung Men and Fire about the Mann Gulch Fire, August, 1949. While reading, I kept coming back to the image of Dodge, who survived the inferno, dying of Hodgkin's disease. Fate, which had saved him at 33, took him at 38."
If you still need words for this or the rest, let me know. They're in the liner notes.
Barbara, happily listening to her new $25 pile of CDs.
