  1. "Last to leave" is my favorite Arlo song. I'm surprised to see it here- it never really got very popular.

  2. Thanks for the Arlo day, Nick.

    A local radio station plays the Alice's Restaurant Massacree every Thanksgiving at noon. My daughter insists that we listen each year - even calling from California now to check that we're listening.

  3. Hope you had a nice Turkey Day last week! :D

  4. Thank you for the Arlo Guthrie songs. He's one of my favorites.

  5. I always feel relaxed after my visit to your coffee house Nick. :)

  6. Haven't heard some of those songs in years. When I looked at the first picture I thought about how young he looked. Then I saw the last one. How does time go by that fast?

  7. I do like your taste in music.
    Happy December to you.

  8. I'm grooving to your music!

    Coincidentally, someone sent me this link today of a new Arlo Guthie YouTube "Amazing Grace" live performance. It's 13 enjoyable minutes long:

  9. These are wonderful songs! I have time to listen to only a few now, but I will be back. Thanks you.

  10. You post some lovely music Nick.

    Sorry I am not around as often. I am posting now and again on my other blog, Cath's Cradle.

    Pop over sometime. You're always welcome...
