Personal Pet Peeve/Thread Drift. No offense intended, but when people, most of whom know better, confuse "tune" and "song," it near creates rage in me.

A song has words and music, a tune is just the music.

Kendall's a fine guitarist, but I can't recall him perfprming any instrumentals.

Please try to preserve our language, especially after eight years of wanton assault.

And now, back to your favorite Kendall song - Tom

I love all the songs I have heard Kendall do. Never heard a clinker come from him. The one that stands out for me is Gently Down The Stream of Time. But no doubt my favorite will be the next one I hear from him, hopefully at Old Songs this year.

You can also hear Kendall singing Phoebe Snow on the Utah Phillips tribute album, available from Righteous Babe.

You can also get the 4-CD collection of Utah's stuff, "Starlight on the Rails." Kendall sings "Ashes on the Sea" on Disk 3, track 25. Track 24, Utah's introduction to the son, is where Utah makes the statement that proves he was a serious user of hallucinogens. (Nyuck, Nyuck)

I first met Mr. Morse on The Maine Public Broadcasting System. He didn't meet me until years later. And he still hasn't, in the flesh, which is his good luck.

Now, I never knew this fellah was an author, a guitar player and a singer of note until a while after I saw him on the TV. Up here in the frozen white north of The Canuck Maritimes, we used to get news of any type well after the fact. I just knew him from the TV, in the kitchen, tellin stories. I was enamoured... enrapt... by the eloquence and the charm.

Then, I found himself, by chance when I was researching song lyrics and recordings at this here Mudcat Café, and I was again taken by his posts. In the past years, I have not only discovered his songs and stories, both recorded and written, but I have come to discover more of this man, albeit from a distance and not truly in depth as we only communicate, off and on, through Max's medium.

If you think that this man's recordings, writings and posts are treasures, I can tell you, even with my very limited friendship with him, indeed from afar, they are tenfold and more.

My favourite? Every single one of them. Treasures all.

And I have heard a lot more of them than most, and fewer than many. I therefore count myself lucky and unfortunate both. Certainly blessed.

If heaven is a rock pile, I want to be on Kendall's chain gang. Don't ask. He won't tell you either.

Well, sometimes I think I will never forget the sound of Kendall singing "Call all hands to man the capstan...." but then I think of him singing "He came from his palace so grand..." and that gets supplanted by the sound of Kendall telling the story about the aged streaker at the garden show, and then I can hear him sining "I remember loving you...." and suddenly that gets pushed aside by the story about the talking dog, which gives way to "By the time you get back here with toilet paper that bird will be a mile away..." and then I hear him singing "Gently Down the Stream of Time" and "Ashes on the Sea" and I get ALL confuzzled.

That must be Dave Mallett's Haying Song.

Ok, Art, that song was ruined for me years ago, so now I'll ruin it for you.
I was singing it for some folks out behind a cattle shed at a Bluegrass festival, and suddenly I noticed a young couple down over the bank rolling around in the grass. I could tell by the way they were acting that they were quite fond of each other, and suddenly, that song took on a whole new meaning.

I'm so honored to see this, but it is also so hard to know I'll never sing again.

It would be hard for anyone to whom singing was a big part of their life. No argument. But at least there's a lot of your stuff on records. So, in a sense, you can go on singing even when you're plowed under.

In the meantime, you can tell lies. You do that SO well...
