Arlo Guthrie

Went to watch Arlo Guthrie's gig in Holmfirth (W. Yorks., UK), last night. I'm still so into it I won't tell you any more until the euphoria has gentled down a bit. But, no, he didn't sing Alice's Restaurant (the soundtrack to a film that enormously influenced the way I've thought about so many things since 1970), saying with a grandfatherly grumpiness,

"There's a good reason some songs are on a record".

In storyteller mode.
