You ain't going nowhere

This is the lead song on Sweetheart of the Rodeo. It's astonishing that nobody's stolen this over the years, that it hasn't gone the way of so many others. But CS 9670 is still with us and still sounds just fine, and not "too" blue-grassy. John Hartford's banjo is very much in evidence here. Nothing's over-produced. I wonder whether the "Earl P. Ball" is our own Earl Pool Ball.
