Scripting News: Sing along with Arlo and me!

In May 2005 I recorded a homemade version of Dixie and uploaded it, suggesting that other people might want to sing along. It worked! It became a chain letter, one person would add his or her voice, upload the result, and someone else would download it, sing along, upload and so on. No one knows who all the people were, or how many branches, or how long it went on, but what a trip!

So I was just listening to the original Alice’s Restaurant recorded by Arlo Guthrie in 1967, and started singing with him. It’s such a great song, and now it takes on new meaning with the problems we’re having with the government and Internet service providers.

So I recorded the last verse, with Arlo, me and a few hundred people at the 1967 concert. You can add your voice and upload the result. Feel free to post a link in the comments here, or start your own thread!

Let’s have fun. 😉
