Anyone know where I can get hold of a recording (CD preferred, but tape okay) by Jim Connor. Jim's a banjo frailer out of Alabama -- wrote "Grandma's Feather Bed". I know he has at least one recording, but I can't put my hands on it. Jim will also be the guest of honor at the Florida Old Time Music Championships this April...

Thanks!

Paul

Jim was in Lexington, VA when I last talked with him over a year ago and planning to move back to Boaz, AL. He has a CD with the New Kingston Trio of masters made between 1969 and 1972 and published by AER Music Group, 8472 Brooksville Rd., Indianapolis, IN 46239. He also has a cassette or two. His music is certainly worth the search. His banjo playing is truly amazing. He is also quite a storyteller and songwriter. I'll see what I can turn up.

This is a site for the New Kingston Trio CD. The address is different from that given above which was taken from my copy of the CD. http://www.fortunecity.com/tinpan/tamborine/175/trio_3/recrdngs/FE1431CD.htm

The additional verse that John Denver didn't sing and isn't in Digitrad:

On Sunday morning we'd go to church and stay for covered dish
I'd run and play and get so tired and then I'd get my wish
To lie out flat and nap and dream with the feathers tucked under my head
But my cousins wouldn't stop ticklin' me in grandmas's feather bed

This verse is also left out in Jim's 1974 studio release, but you can find a video of Jim singing the complete song in 2011 on YouTube.
