Joshua Gone Barbados

If you put "Joshua" in the search box at the top of the page and scan down on the page you get to you will find an essay on the song "Joshua Gone Barbados" by Erich Von Schmidt. I figured the least I could do was let you hear what it sounded like, so you can hear Erich's version if you click HERE.

There are two other voices playing and making interjections on this recording. If I remember correctly the voice in the middle ground (and playing bongos) is Geof Muldauer and the voice (and harmonica) in the background was Bob Dylan. It was recorded in London and I suspect that I was in London about the same time because I met Bob in a folk club about that time, 1965, I think.
