Some notes on the songs:

  • The Michael Nesmith song is a request from Mr. Pinto, who apparently got a dose of Michael N. while we roomed together in college.  Then, I had an LP by Nesmith entitled Live at the Palais but, alas, it is nowhere to be found in my collection today.  Hence, this alternate chestnut, which was a staple on the radio stations of my youth.
  • Jackson Browne’s cover of The Incredible String Band’s “First Girl I Loved” was taken from the CD Rubáiyát, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of Elektra Records in 1990.
