Zurf Well Done !!
I actually enjoyed the Jesus song as much or better than the others.
Tell Alvin that this is a great song ! You are a very talented musician with a lot of Charisma Zurf !
Sadly I can't tell Alvin anything. He passed away five or so years ago. The mid-Atlanic river fishing community was shaken to its core, and it broke my heart. Honestly, I am still recovering from his loss. At least twice a week, I still wish I could call him. It made for an interesting funeral though, in which there was about half of the group who hadn't been inside a church in decades and the best clothes they owned were covered in many, many pockets. His dear widow, Miss Tricia, loved on every one of those weepy, grizzly, deeply tanned, mostly intoxicated individuals...showing just what a remarkable individual Alvin was to attract such a strong, moral, caring, and loving woman.
But...here is a picture Garuchi (recent Chordiestock attendees know him) took of me playing bass with Alvin singing that particular song in Garuchi's basement studio. The knee-biters are my kids. I'm holding the bass. Alvin is laughing at my kids' antics. As was his wont. That youngest one remains pretty darn punk, as the picture would indicate. If it looks like Alvin would have barely fit through the door behind him, that's because Alvin was a very large man who would have barely fit through the door behind him.
And here is another picture of that dear man. He never earned a lot of money, and he frequently rued the fact that he didn't have a boat to row. He loved to row boats. He was amazing rowing boats. A stronger "engine" you will never find. The mid-Atlantic river fishermen got together and bought him an inflatable pontoon boat for his birthday. This is a picture of when the present was revealed to him. There's not a dry eye in the campground. The days had been running over 100 degrees. About this picture, Alvin said, "I know it was hot because my eyes were sweating." Dirty Ed was there and wrote a song for him titled "Special Men." That's Dirty Ed in the background, sitting with a guitar and wearing a head lamp. And...I think his eyes might have been sweating a little bit too.
And the next day, that crazy old Hillbilly hadn't stopped smiling. I came across him on the river while he was testing out his new boat, and he was still smiling ear to ear.
