Some of it-yes, some of it no. I've never heard the Dave Davies story before, never heard him speak about the state of English folk before, among other little tidbits.

Jude, in all seriousness it's not the easiest song to attempt is it? Especially if copying the version on 'Bless Its Pointed Little Head'. How did SN's version compare to Marty Balin's?

To be perfectly honest I have no idea how it would compare.. probably the words were the same. It would have been loud.. It was probably drowned out by the rest of the band. It was 1967.

Gillian Welch also does an excellent version of it.
