    I was lucky enough to see Jerry Jeff Walker a couple of times. He was a great showman. He does a much better version of Mr. Bojangles that is slower and more heartfelt. Check out this version from his "Great Gonzo" album.

    Quote from odd man out: “I'm more familiar with the Bob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie versions. I always assumed one of them wrote it. ” I would say just another case of a couple of Yankees getting credit for the work of a Southner, but actually Jerry Jeff…

    Jerry Jeff Walker gone at 78 from throat cancer. Personally feel Nitty Gritty Dirt Band version is better, but I am sure Jerry Jeff enjoyed cashing all those royalty checks for writing it. youtu.be/mDoeUz8vExY

    On one of our trips to Boston we spent most of a day in Salem. Very interesting day; toured a graveyard and learned about the Witch Trials and then saw a few other places. Neat place; planned on returning sometime but that hasn't happened yet.
