Yep, I'm talking about the ONLY Steve Goodman as far as I'm concerned! I wish I could actually find his albums in stores. His version of "As Time Goes By" is not only the best version ever, it's one of my favorite songs ever. Poor Steve :-(

He totally is, or was. We sure lost some great all-around musicians very prematurely in 83/84--Stan Rogers, Lenny Breau and certainly Steve Goodman.

You could play a hell of a good set--in fact a full evening's worth-- of his lesser-known songs without touching City of New Orleans

He even previewed the end of the 20th century, and taught us how to get by with somebody's else's troubles...and raged against injustice in his "Chicken Cordon Blues."

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

He lived longer than anyone expected him to thanks to the dietary changes his wife put him on for the lupus. CCB is a funny song but I am glad his family, and us, had him a bit longer.

Best solo live performer I ever saw. There is a boxed set out there somewhere, Matt. I saw it at Borders and I'm not sure how complete it is but you don't want to miss Artistic Hair (various live performances) or Somebody Else's Troubles (contains The Dutchman).vl

Stevie didn't have lupus, he had leukemia. I suspect it was his many bouts of chemotherapy and his doctors at Sloan Kettering that were the major factors in extending his life.

A great artist. Arlo Guthie made a minor chord/melody change to Steve's original " City of New Orleans", and to ears that knew Steve's version first, it has always sounded like an unnecessary "gimmicky" alteration. But Arlo's version is the way it's usually heard.

I love the man and his mind and his articulateness and his music. Great, great loss. 36 years old. His songs get sung at our weekly song circle.

Ah yes...such great songs. I especially love the live versions of his songs...his on-stage banter with the audience is great.

"Well, this is another song about the road...and you know, who cares?"

I've found that the music I write myself is most inspired by Steve Goodman, Dougie MacLean, Jim Croce, Bob Dylan and Tom Paxton.

Hey, Matt, good to see you again. You should check out this thread, which started back in your Mbo days. It includes wonderful reminiscences by the likes of Art Thieme, Saul Broudy, and Harvey Andrews (check out Harvey's story of the time Steve followed him at a concert).

Aloha,
Mark

I remember sitting on my front porch with my mother and father (may they rest in peace) and singing Goodman's "Old Smoothies" for them. My mother's eyes were shining with the beginning of tears, she liked it so much.

Are you kidding? I can't leave my roots! hahah. In fact, I managed to find Teenage Fanclub's [u]Thirteen[/u] in a used CD bin, much to my excitement...along with some Housemartins, Velvet Underground and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci.

Here it is, Jeep Man, with the proper title! A good quick encore song.
Sorry I don't do tunes or chords. Original has slide guitar in the pauses, I add a few "Whoa Whoas" and a bit of kazoo!

I AIN'T HEARD YOU PLAY NO BLUES
(Steve Goodman)

My baby came to me this mornin'
She said: "Honey, I'm confused.
If me and B.B. King were drownin'
Which one would you choose?"
I said: "Baby",
I said: " Baby"
I said: "Hey, baby"
I ain't never heard you play no blues ."

RtS
(my "audience" likes it 'cause it's short. Sheila feels it's too close to the truth!)
