I could burn a disc if you want some Yodelin’ Slim Clark. I may have a cassette also.

Thanks, but no need.

Previous question

I saw you at The Tractor when you came through Seattle this summer. I wanted to do the shake and howdy after the show but had to leave because the next day was Monday and a 5:30 wake up call. I loved your show and was especially moved by your rousing version of Rolling Stone From Texas. I am a big Don Walker fan and did not realize he had been a mentor for you. I lived in Maine for a while. I wanted to ask you if you had heard of Yodeling Slim Clark! You did such an incredible job on the yodeling I figured you must have heard of him. I saw Yodeling Slim at a festivsl at Sugarloaf with Dick Curless, Fred Pike, Sam Tidwell and the Kennebec Valley Boys, Earl Scruggs, and Waylon back in 1975! Anyway, love your stories and Quick As Dreams ...Crilly Ritz

Good Morning Slaid,
I caught you twice this summer on your west coast tour, at McCabes and Original mikes in DTSA. What a great time i had at both shows!!

Ive always resonated the haunting sound and lyrics of your song "Below".
This morning while listening to you and this song i realized why .

The same thing happened to the small town of Keetley ,Utah where older brother had a ranch . THe Ranch is now at the bottom of the Deer Creek recreation area under 500 feet of water. The valley they flooded was beautiful and huge part of my Youth. I have many fond memories of staying with my Brother, at his Ranch , while skiing seemingly endless days of powder at the Park City Ski Areas.
I loved that Ranch and Awesome valley !
Anyway ,I thought i would share one of the many reasons I love your Music.
Enjoy The Day
PS say hi to Karen.
