Just wanted to say, on Wishbones from Sorrow and Smoke, one of my favorite parts is when you say Holly that stand has a little knob on it to adjust (or something similar) but the best part is when you say " or we could just get down on our knees and play, whatever you like" Brings a smile to my face when I hear that!

Ha! That's "Ollie" actually - Oliver Steck on accordion and trumpet and harmonica on the live album. For some reason he wasn't adjusting the microphone stand between songs (and instruments), just bending over when switching from accordion to trumpet, etc. Ollie is a master of physical humor - he even went to clown college.
