Deckman Mighty Day (the Galveston one) (11) RE: Mighty Day (the Galveston one) 12 Jun 15


Mitzy ... I so appreciate you starting this thread. My reasons are personal and all go back to Bob Gibson. I first met him in about 57 or 58 when he hit Seattle witha brand new banjo and the three chords he knew. He was a very powerful person and I was one of many that fell under his influence for a while. Buddy Don Firth and I ended up in Sausilito, Ca., in 59, about the same tine that Gibson hit the "Anchor Steam House." For a while, we all hung out there together ... great times.

Back to Galveston Flood ... I've not ever heard a better version that what Gibosn did with this song. The power and drive still stirs me.

Who was it that just recently said: "No one would remember that there was a flood in Galveston ... except for the song? Perhaps it was Lomax? ... I dunno.

Again ... thanks for this thread. CHEERS, bob(deckman)nelson
