"Big John"

We started doing this old tune from the 1960's several years
ago. Never a regular in our sets, its a tune that sort of makes
itself known when it needs to be played. This night, we were
playing a private show in Scotland. It was a good crowd-
really close to us, but we were burned out after two solid
weeks on the road. I can't say its the best we've ever played it,
but it has a certain feeling that I think translates something
beyond what Jimmy Dean originally got across in his version...
