Subject: RE: Dirty Linen's Guthrie Family article
and I should say that I have nothing but love and respect for Nora and Arlo. Have met Nora, or better said have seen/heard her in public, she wouldn't remember me, but I am all for her archival project, and Arlo seems to be, in his music, and his appearances, and his interviews, and as people who know him have talked about him, one generally all round likeable and fun and caring person. all the best to the clan, but that doesn;t mean I can pretend that Mermaid Avenue was worth Bragg's effort, or Nora's trust. Others may do better in future in writing tunes to go with his words, or alter the words some, and some of Woody's writing may do better to inspire songs, when they are available to be read, than be converted to songs directly. Here's to the future of Woody's music.
