I was fortunate to see him up close at The Riverboat in Yorkville circa 1974. Loved him. Man could he smoke an acoustic guitar!  The only things I do that he did aren't his, though. City of New Orleans and The Dutchmen. He owned those tunes, however. Here's to you Steve!

hmmmmm, I know Michael (Peter) Smith wrote " The Dutchman" and Steve had a huge hit with it.
 I'm pretty sure steve was the writer of "City of New Orleans'.
 Please correct me if I'm wrong, as a writer, I'm pretty fussy about who I think (or say) wrote a tune...

My time with Steve Goodman, was at Centre Island in Toronto 1973, or 1974.
could have even been 1972. It was a wet crazy year with Taj Mahal, Bonnie Raitt, Jack Elliot, and many others who kept the floor of the hotel rockin' all night.
hey, but I'm old, I forget stuff.

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...

City of New Orleans is songwriting at it's best in my humble opinion...just a great, great song. Another of my favorite songs that Steve did wasn't even written by him. The Dutchman, which was written by Michael Peter Smith, a pretty darn good songwriter in his own right.

Oh yeah, re: CONO, senior moment brain cramp. Probably why he "owned" it.

Nice post, James, Thanks! Live music makes the world such a better place.

Neil certainly thinks so

"Every fourth Friday at 10 am
There's a meeting of the A F of M. yeah

"This meeting will now come to order
Is there any new business?"

Member:
"Yeah, I think 'Live music is better'
Bumper stickers should be issued"

Chairman:
"What was that?"

Member:
"'Live music is better' bumper stickers
Should be issued"

Chairman:
"The gentleman says
'Live music is better' bumper stickers

All in favour of what he said
Signify by sayin' 'ay'"

"Ay!"
