    I guess I was too excited to check the spelling.

    I’d blame autocorrect.

    one thing this planet could always use is more folks playing John Hartford's music, thank you Sam - looking forward to it.

    Should be great! Too bad that Sam isn't calling this album "Volume 1."

    BTW, I think that it's basically a one-man-band overdub project, perhaps with some additional vocalists.

    Entirely fitting that it is on the Smithsonian label.
    First tune I learned on guitar( and probably the only one I can still play) was Presbyterian Guitar, I hope it’s in there.

    I've heard a few bands do "Steam Powered Aeroplane" but never anything as great as Sam and NGR's version on "Commonwealth"

    And Paris never was my kinda town
    So I walked around with the Ft. Worth Blues

    Good old Sam, he was pretty close with J.H. and played on many of his recordings as I understand it. He did play on Jamie Hartford's "A Part of Your History" tribute to his Dad's music, and Sam also co wrote Hartford's Reel with David Grisman.

    one of my favorite Hartford covers is Travelin' McCourys "Natural to be Gone"

    I fixed the spelling on the Title of the thread for search sake.
