in the mid 1970s, or so, i went up to Mystic CT (from New Haven where i had been living) where i did a gig. the next day i got on the road and headed for California via Main, Canada, Detroit, Chicago, straight south to Austin TX, and San Francisco (hitchhiking all the way). this song more or less recounts that event.
the concert photos were taken by my friend Yasunori Yamamoto, who hat come up to New Haven, from New York, for the day. i was doing a show (at a church) with Kath Bloom, Tom Hanford. and Loren Connors in 1981. www.dragcity.com/artists/ed-askew
