Hedy West - Little Sadie



I was reading the new Zelazny compilation and it mentions that Roger was once engaged to Hedy West for five months. Apparently his mom stepped in and kaiboshed the whole deal, maybe thought that the folk singer moved a little too fast for the kid from Ohio. Hedy wrote the popular folk tune 500 miles.

bleepin' brilliant...Pete Seeger in the front row eating it up...damn, never heard of Hedy before...familiar with Dylan's version, on the Self Portrait album...banjo takes it to a whole other level, though; almost sounds like a sitar...5 friggin' stars!
