GK: This portion of our show brought to you by the City of St. Paul....the city of mystery and romance on the upper Mississippi. (GONG) From far and wide, people travel to this legendary metropolis (TRAIN WHISTLE) and the sight of its shining towers and its golden domes are a beacon to the weary and the disillusioned that illumination and passion are not to be found in some faraway place but right here in the heart of the heart of the country. St. Paul.
If you seek romance it's in St. Paul
And music and dance it's in St. Paul
And sweet mystery right here, St. Paul
And intimacy my dear, St. Paul
The mystical fire O wow, St. Paul
Of love and desire Right now, St. Paul
Not in Montreal or Bengal
You will find it in St. Paul.
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).
