Subject: RE: There but for fortune
Hi, Susanne - the collection I listened to has the same cut you have, the one from Joan Baez 5. I listened again, and I'll admit it's hard to pick out the ending sound of the last word on that line - I still say it's "whose life has gone stale." I can't say I'm totally satisfied with either rendition of the line. I could wish that Ochs had polished it a bit more.
