Special Award for the Most Poignant Single Pick
Special Award for the Most Poignant Single Pick James Pritchett
Someone who did not actually enter the contest got the biggest "Mystic Chords" emotional reaction from me.
There is a YouTube video of Peter, Paul and Mary singing Gordon Lightfoot's Early Morning Rain. It's a great performance of a great song. You must hear it.
YouTube member "jstrytllr" (James Pritchett) posted this recollection:
"Standing at the end of the flight line at Cam Ranh Bay (footnote 1), watching the other guys head for home. Hearing this song. Feeling the tears fall. Thanks, PP&M."
That's exactly what I was looking for. So, I have mailed to Mr. Pritchett the JMR CD of Arturo Delmoni's Songs My Mother Taught Me.
I hope you enjoyed the results.John Marks
Footnote 1: Cam Ranh Bay was the disembarkation/embarkation point for most US soldiers during the Vietnam WarJM.
