Deckman 'Owned' songs (58* d) RE: 'Owned' songs 20 Jan 18


I can add something of a funny spin to this interesting thread. When I was 16, MANY years ago, I sang " "Devilish Mary" at a hoot in Seattle. I had just the week before met the "great" Walt Robertson. I didn't know him at all, I didn't even know that he'd just recorded his first record album with Moses Ash, of Folkways. At this time, in Seattle, Walt was viewed as something as a god ... GEEZE LOUSE ... a TV show and records too! AND, one of the songs he sang was "Devilish Mary." After I sang my song, a friend took me to one side and pointed out that he was sitting there in the corner and I'd dared to sing one "his songs."

Not a ten minutes went by and he came over and complemented me on my version and presentation.

A few years later, we became fast friends and we laughed about that "introduction" to ourselves often. Sometimes ignorance can be bliss? bob(deckman)nelson
