Love this tune!
I'm at maximum volume.
That's 2KW of peak Bryston power playing through a pair of Magnepan 3.6s plus another 1.5KW from the Paradigm Servo 15.
I don't push my system that hard very often. 100dB is not good for the ears, and I want to listen to RP until Bill and I are very old men.
However, this song begs me to crank it every time.
Wow! Awesome sound system!!!!

|This played a big role for me back in the day, cruising Main in my 57 Chevy - drove a school bus to earn money for the payment - Main Street being about a mile long and ending at the beginning of red dirt country roads that held erotic promise, more often than not unrealized. Just before Vietnam, in training in Georgia, my bud Jimmy Drown, years before his time with The Id or The Blend, would hold his left handed 12 string while I strummed and sang this song, and while we both laughed our young asses off. God bless John Sebastian and Jimmy Drown.|

I hear shades of Steve Forbert, I thought he had a great voice.
Shades of Forbert? I looked to the screen to see what Forbert album this came from wondering how I had missed it.

|The emotional, impressionable, beautiful nurse who was infatuated with me because I was a vet, just returned from Vietnam, asked me, wanted me to confirm actually, that the last verse was about a bullet. I said yes, I'm sorry to say, because I was equally infatuated with her.|

Amazing contrast with some listeners. Cockburn is one of the best kept secrets in music, and much better than Lightfoot IMO.

Heard of but no nothing about the Mouse, vocals and tune reminds me of Steve Forbert who you don't play?
I thought I was the only one who thought of Forbert when I hear this!

My body is naked now & it was born naked. No matter how I dress up or undress I'm naked. The hours of the early morning find me naked & I find the hours & the morning just as naked as they find me... The best & juiciest of humanly truths are our naked truths. Our fittest honesty is our naked honesty... This is what I call being truthfully democratic. - Woodrow (Woody) Guthrie

Okay - I'm dealing with some serious personal stuff now - maybe reconnecting with a family I thought was gone... I'm emotional anyway, but this song just injected some hope into a situation that is, at best, dysfunctional.
I don't believe in crossed fingers. I believe in positivity. And this song brings it on in tons. I'll sit here and weep, and love the song, and then move on to what needs to be done to make things right.
Thank you, Richie Havens and RadioParadise. And, of course, before I can wipe my tears, I get TMGB's "Why Does The Sun Shine?" Life is just weirder than shit, innit?
I hear you! When it first came out, I lived in beautiful Bavaria but was going through a horrendous breakup. Yep, this song helped me along too.

It's fascinating to listen to early Pearl Jam, then the later years, and then contrast it to this album.
Feels like growing up. Perhaps I am fortunate to have shared Eddies age, era and outlook at more points than I would care to admit. Now he's matured, and found, like many of us, that's while brash noise can communicate Jeremy's haunting world, it's like the color red on a painter's palette. Useful, but not universal.
Beauty, as it turns out, is found not in so much in a blast of color, or frame of the artwork, but in the subtly of substance, context and delivery.
What a great statement.
