3. Yeah, old is the world. Goodbye Shadow.

 

He never really got his due.

And remember when the Beatles(the 3 of them) released "free as a bird" from the old Lennon demo?

The added part of that song, was a note for note from 'leader of the pack" and Morton took it in stride, proud of it I guess.

Society's Child was a stunningly great song. The production is amazing. And Janis Ian was what? 14 or 15?
