    This is THE meeting with Susan Dumett @ Burning Man 05. This is 5 months after my father died, and I arrived at BM to find the Temple of Joy was hot pink Asiatic Temples!!! A guy (still trying to find out his name!) asked me if his 'sister' could sing with me. I was tripping hard and groovin, and said yes. She did and 2 months later came down to LA to record the track "Sound and Recent Sorrow." The version you are hearing is the studio version- I wil post the original too- it is amazing how close they are! And there was no referencing between the two.
