Robert Pearce of Arbroath, Scotland
To my wife Joyce
I have two poems, one silly one real:
Roses are Red, Violets are blue,
I'm a schizophrenic
And so am I.
My love is like a cabbage
A thing of many parts,
I gave the leaves to others
But to you I gave the heart.
Lovingly selected from the earliest archives of A Prairie Home Companion, this heirloom collection represents the music from earliest years of the now legendary show: 1974–1976. With songs and tunes from jazz pianist Butch Thompson, mandolin maestro Peter Ostroushko, Dakota Dave Hull and the first house band, The Powdermilk Biscuit Band (Adam Granger, Bob Douglas and Mary DuShane).
