"Ballad of Lady James"

"It was around 1970, in Champaign, Illinois, and journeyman composer Dave Luck had just put the finishing
touches on two songs, Sweet Lady James and The Tiger. He hired Dan and three excellent musicians
to breathe life into the tunes - both vocally and instrumentally in Dan's case.
(He also hired Rick Mansfield and me, but we just got in the way.)

The details are quite foggy 46 years later, but I think Dave had entrepreneurial plans
for his tunes sung by Dan. Who didn't?"
