Hi Amos,

The copyright symbol is for Marla's reworking of the poem into a song and, more specifically, that particular arrangement of the song. In other words, I think we're okay here. I've spoke to Marla this morning (Nov 5) and she has given her consent to include "Joe Whitaker" in the Violet compilation.

Marla is very thorough about such matters although I can't remember whether she contacted Don West or, for that matter, whether he's still alive. I'll send an e-mail to her right now and make sure about this.
