A cover of my very favorite Randy Newman song, which is also maybe the saddest song I know.

Oversight, ya me too. I had no idea that Newman wrote such beautiful stuff. This is really great ORthey!

I'll never get tired of your picking and singing.

Thanks guys!

snofoam, I highly recommend getting Sail Away. One of the best albums every made, IMHO. He sullied his rep with all his Disney stuff, but in the 70s he was amazing.

This is some lovely picking. Am off to download a whole bunch of yours now.

Jofus, yea, ORthey is right on. I don't mean to be all sentimental about it, but the smoothness is like, "there couldn't be anything more natural in the world". I've been lucky enough to hang out with some really good/fast finger-folk, but ORthey's low-key brilliance knocks me out.
