Barefoot Gal
Mark: I had this song half written and I couldn’t figure out how to finish it. I gave it to Daniel Seymour and he brought it back to me, with the words, melody and chords all finished. It’s one of the first things we recorded, and it’s a fun song. Our shout chorus is particularly silly. And that’s David Olney on harmonica! I even get to play banjo and kazoo on this one.
Dan: Originally conceived of as a jump blues number, I heard "Jugband" as soon as Mark played me the first draft. David Olney's harmonica bends and a little 4-string banjo sealed the deal. This is the song that got this project started and is the first song Mark Robinson and I wrote together. A silly little story with lots of room for old time pickin' and a shout chorus to boot!
