This Troubled Mind of Mine
My old man loved Woody and Arlo Guthrie. They, and Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Peter, Paul and Mary, et al., were ever present background music of my childhood.
But he absolutely hated Buck Owens and The Buckaroos. But I love Buck Owens and The Buckaroos. This was just one of the many, many things we just could never see eye to on.
So I find it very funny, indeed, that all these years later I discover that backing up Arlo on this track---a favorite of my father--- is none other that The Buckaroos! And as I listen to it now, with this new insight, it has never sounded quite so good---or so sweet. In fact, I think it just might be a new favorite!
