A Little Night Music

Actually, this is more than just a “little”. It’s the full version of Arlo Guthrie’s song in honor of his 64th birthday.

I heard the whole song performed by Mr. Guthrie at the Newport Folk Festival in 1967. I was in Newport that summer at summer school, and they let us out one night to go to the festival. If there’s a recording of that night, you’ll hear me, Mike Woods, and Perky Butler singing along.
