I would have to do some serious digging to find it, but you are probably right, Mark, that it was Ralph and his band rather than the Stanley Brothers.

I had the conversation I mentioned earlier backstage at the University of Chicago Folk Festival. Must have been about 1971. We were probably both at the same festival.

I have a copy of that 45 rpm record. There's a spot where Tucker stops and stumbles over a word and then re-starts that makes me angry whenever I hear it. It was very obvious that he went into some play-for-pay studio to make that record, and the people running the place took his money, but they couldn't be bothered to spend two minutes editing the tape before they cut the disc master.
