THANKS for this, which has fast become a favorite. I used several of these songs, including the wonderful 'Lady Off Pedestal At Notre Dame', on a compilation of my own. Here's a link, on the slim chance you haven't heard Rodd's great 'House Of Japan', which seems to be fairly hard to find. Thanks again!

Hey, belated thanks for the HOUSE OF JAPAN link! I hadn't heard that one before- I'm always amazed how many song poem/Rodd Keith records there are out there--
