Ohh...wow! Yes...buy it! It's been way too long a-coming. And Craig seldom gets up here any more.

"Piney Mountains" is a treasure of a song...one of those things you could well believe was 'traditional' and pretty old.

I don't think any songwriter captures the spirit of the (Northern) Midwest better than Craig Johnson.
Art Thieme made a Craig Johnson disciple out of me.

People, if you want to know what I think of the great music Craig Johnson makes, just do a Forum Search with his name and the many posts I've made about this good man will become apparent to all.

I am truly looking forward to having this CD. Thirty years!! That's how long I've been waiting for it to be a reality. I know it's wonderful-- and that I will love it.

Craig and Brenda, thanks for making this happen.

Be well,

Love from Art & Carol

Yes, it's true, I'll have copies of Craig's CD for sale at the Getaway. And believe me, it's some of the most beautiful folk music, of any style, you'll ever hear. A treasure.

I bought a copy from Martha. I've listened through it twice, and really enjoyed it. A nice mixture of traditional songs with the terrific songs Craig has written.

Art, my apologies. I saw your other thread and went to transfer your message to this one, but got an error message. I couldn't even retrieve what you had posted. I suspect there may have been two of us clones working on it at the same time. My hope is the other clone, if that is what happened, will be able to resurrect it for you. I should have copied it first just in case. Sorry, my friend.

People, all of the songs on this CD are renhdered as only Craig can do 'em. He has absolutely one of the most singular voices in all of old timey and trad-based folkie music since bluesman Skip James and/or Kweskin Jug Band vocalists Geoff Muldauer or Bruno Wolf.

BUT there is one incandescent song here that only Craig Johnson could've done justice to; And that is his amazing version of the cowboy song OLD PAINT. It is a terribly difficult song to do well!!! That is possibly the reason nobody has ever done it well since Jess Morris recorded it for the old Archive Of Folk Song at the Library of Congress in Washinton D.C.

When our son, Chris, was small I'd always leave home and tell him, possibly with a twinkle in my eye, not to play my instruments while we were gone. Knowing he'd be plunking on 'em as soon as the door was shut, I left a guitar and banjo out available for him to pick upon. ---- Well, years ago, as Craig pretty much will tell you, I introduced Mr. Johnson to Mr. Morris' Old Paint. Somehow, it wasn't a total surprise to find it on this CD. Craig Johnson's vocal, with only his fiddle accompanying, is simply stunnng!!

I'll be back to talk about the other songs here encased, but for now, I just had to give it's own post to this superlative track.

I do hope my other thread gets deleated by Joe -- or anyone. I actually forgot this thread was already here... Recent memory is much impaired of late.

Maybe I was posting this re-do of my earlier post while you were working on it. Thanks a ton.

And it was great talking to you today---or was it yesterday?? It's really a dumb symptom of m' malady.

After talking with Art a couple of days ago, I am even more eager to hear this. Just sorry it comes at such a sad time for Craig. May he find comfort and be free of pain and know that his works are much loved and enjoyed.

Thanks for the heads-up, Art!
