Both Will the Circle Be Unbroken Albums. I had them on vinyl in college, just great.

So many songs to choose from. Today I will pick Some of Shelly's Blues, however I was leaning towards Bowlegs in response to our current Covid-19 circumstances.

TNGDB version came out first and received a lot of air play my freshman year in college. Really wasn't aware of Loggins and MEssina version, that came out a year later, until Loggins came out with "return to pooh corner" a quarter century later.

Great song, but I like the original by Jerry Jeff Walker better.

Does “An American Dream” (backing vocals by Linda Ronstadt) count?

It counts, if it’s really your favorite.

I’d forgotten about that one until you posted it...

Bless the Broken Road,

How is this only "semi-OT"?


Clue to “how” is posts 10 and 14.

Who?


You may remember them simply as “The Dirt Band”, the name of their band, which played the role of their former and future selves, “The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band”, in their semi-chrono-eponymous feature length motion picture.

Still Confused?

You won’t be, after this episode of

Dirt

Fantastic version. My favorite is David Bromberg talking about touring with JJW and doing his own version.

Does “An American Dream” (backing vocals by Linda Ronstadt) count?

That would be my favorite....and I was unaware that Rondstadt sang backup on the tune. Reminds me of the kind of cool trivia facts Casey Kasem used to build into his American Top-40 Broadcasts. 04-cheers
