I've mentioned Andy Breckman before. Before he became a hotshot TV producer he was a humorous folk singer (here is his description of his tour with Don McLean, which is followed by a response from McLean in which he calls Andy a 'dufus') and his song Railroad Bill is an example of the kind of song I would like to write if my brain worked that way.
cgoldfish suggested a while ago that I record Guthrie's Car Song. I was hindered for quite a while by a complete inability to make car sounds with my mouth, but then a couple of days ago I figured out how to make some pretty substandard motor noises, and the result is here.
The result of the Brunner poll was clear: a surprising number of people wanted to hear Faithless Jack the Spaceman. So here it is, a simple arrangement for vocals and washboard. I will try to record the other songs people wanted sometime soon.
- Railroad Bill [introduction] (July 6, 2006) -- guitar, vocals
- The Car Song [introduction] (July 7, 2006) -- guitar, vocals
- Faithless Jack the Spaceman [introduction] (July 8, 2006) -- vocals, washboard
