Howdy from Texas!

I can PL this for you. Chris has had an adventure quest finding a place for this. I tracked it from another project just to see what it was about.

If my PL is acceptable to Jo, here is my reaction:

I like to "see" a half second or more lead in. This is rather abrupt.

Volume seems high. There is a hollow distortion sound most of the way through. I had this trouble before and a de-amplify to .5 top and bottom cured it. I do all mine that way now. Actually, I like it high and I just turn down the volume on the earphones, but people listen in many different ways.

Particulars:
0:57 "Iniquity" unclear; missing a syllable.
2:06 abrupt pause seems out of place, distracting.

Occasional light mike bumps -- not necessarily distracting -- might go away with de-amp

Good effort, Chris. Glad you brought this to my attention! Thanks.

Howdy from Texas!

Keep it short. Keep it simple. Here's how Henry van Dyke summarizes that advice:

Howdy Bill.


Thanks for your recording. I think you have the cited the wrong book as the source for this piece. It appears to be Chapter XII from "Days Off and other Digressions." I could not find this in "Fisherman's Luck and Some Other Uncertain Things" which is the link you provided.

Absolutely right. I was working on another project from Fisherman's Luck and got them mixed up.

I removed the "from" line in the recording. Just have to do without. Here is the new info, with length and weight:
