I've just posted The Green-Eyed Dragon (plus amendments) to Max's area on driveway.com.

Cheers all, and enjoy!

I searched, but couldn't find a recording on line. Since it was last recorded on a 78, I somehow doubt that you'll ever see one. The 78 is available for sale at about US$5 on one of the bulletin boards that Google came up with.

Sorry, folks.

Ain't napster grand? My driveway account now includes an mp3 of John Charles Thomas singing "The Green-Eyed Dragon". Come one, come all!

Deleted Napster some time ago - and had forgotten about it. As I'd obviously forgotten some of the words of The Green-Eyed Dragon. Thanks for that, Max. It sounds a bit "old", especially the scratches, although they sound exactly the same as the scratches I remember from my 78.

Great stuff! [Good for You emoticon]

Capital Kiwi remarke Deleted Napster some time ago - and had forgotten about it.

As had I. I decided to reinstall Napster after reading of your fruitless search. Old, arcane, pieces like this one are the sorts of downloads that I have no qualms about using Napster for. If I didn't get them through Napster, I would never hear them. I found Alan Jones' Donkey Serenade, also.

Lemme see ... "There's a song in the air, but the fair senorita doesn't seem to care for the song in the air?"

How's that for a 39-year-old memory? Did I get it right?

Oh, MAX, what a treat that was! And, C.K., thanks for bringing it up in the first place!

Oh, paulb and lusy, you probably have this, but if you don't, be sure and tune this in! Oh, what happened to the days of in-home entertainment around the piano, and just a well-done solo or duet version of a song,
or even a story, without all the added noise and gizmos?
