Dennis Driscoll sings "Bury Me Beneath the Weeping Willow"

Dennis Driscoll: Bury Me Beneath the Weeping Willow

After I had been working on this project for a few weeks, I ran into Seattleite Dennis Driscoll in Olympia at a now-defunct house-cum-live venue called "the Finger Complex." I mentioned the project to him, and he immediately had this song in mind. I had my tape recorder, so he just sang it unaccompanied right then and there. You can listen in and hear the automobiles driving by, and at the very end you can hear the band inside the house start playing. Dennis' singing voice is a lil' bit sped up on this song, due to the batteries dying. There's a few numbers that work out that way, it's just a part of the process. This situation was destiny if there ever was, and I'm pleased as punch with the recording!
