I bumped it up to a 9 just for the subject matter. Nice slide guitar work on it too.

Modern technology has rendered this song obsolete.  Perhaps he should re-write it as "Good Planets are Hard to Get To"

Well, this is a great day! First time I've heard Steve Forbert here - and a song of his I've never heard before, to boot! Not many comments for this one over the years, tho'. Guess it doesn't get much play. The planets surely must have aligned for me to hear this song tonight.
Go ahead, sing it , Steve!

Nice motif going here with the planets. Bill, I challenge you a Royal Straight theme. Let's see, you need a 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. What do ya got?

Hmmm... Does Bill have a theme going here?

I cannot explain why I like Ol' Steve so much. Sorta reminds me of Shel Silverstein (sp?).
 

I agree about Shel!  Great stuff!

Agreed! Can anyone out there do any uploads? It would be much appreciated.

Wow Bill, really on a roll with this ecological consciousness set, between "Hard Day On the Planet" and "Mother Earth" and on to "Lonely Planet"
