I am listening to my 2 year old son laugh wildly because he's being tickled by his dad.

Know what, Z? I think that because we love our own favorites so much, we assume everyone else knows all the words too!

Yeah, I guess. It's not really even what I'd call a 'favorite'... It was just a song I thought of that I used to hear all the time. Maybe I'm just getting old , or maybe it just got a lot more air play in some regions. I'm frequently surprised when I run into someone (in real life and on line) who isn't familiar with certain songs that I think are 'standards'.

Z I have never even heard of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. What kind of music do they play?

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils sound could probably be most simply described as country rock, similar to groups like Pure Prarie League, the Marshall Tucker Band and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. The enjoyed mainstream popularity in the 70's using mainly country instruments (banjo, fiddle, harmonica) and sweet vocal harmonies to make music outside the traditional country sound. I think their greatest commercial success was a single release in (I think 1974) called "Jackie Blue".

It's pretty 'dated' now I think... you might not like it. I'm not sure how strongly I'd recommend it.

If you're interested in county-style music or alternative country I would, however, recommend another artist you probably don't know - - Kasey Chambers, particularly the album called 'The Captain'. Check it out.

There is not a style or genre of music I have found that I did not enjoy (at least something in it). I like the Marshall Tucker Band and love CSN&Y. What really stoked my interest though was when you said banjo, fiddle, harmonica. I love all three

Well... They're certainly different. LOL

I used to have one or two of their albums (back in 'the day') but now, when I listen to 'samples' I'm all . They did have some interesting stuff. I think my fave was the one I quoted, "If You Want to Get to Heaven"... "Chicken Train" also makes me smile. (They also had some kind of nice ballad-style songs)

OK, Z, to continue our little game:

Long as she got a dime
The music will never stop
