Joybell Lyr Add: Chicago Bust Rag (Greg Hildebrand) (7) RE: Lyr Add: Chicago Bust Rag (Greg Hildebrand) 03 Dec 12

Hello Clem. Thank you for the message. i'm pleased that you like the song. Steve Goodman was a great performer and a superb guitarist, from what I can gather from recordings. I don't think I ever actually met him -- I think he was still in high school when I lived in Chicago -- and I don't know how he learned the song. I was living in Vientiane in 1974 when I was told about him. When I did hear his version I was quite impressed with it. I think he did a great job. I still regret not having the opportunity to meet him.
                  all the best, hildebrand
So True-love's song spread quite quickly to the West. Interesting.
