...the sun was shining in
went to the pool room, grabbed some balls, and then
Said, " I just dropped in, to see what position, my position was in"

Neat song, great, but off beat movie it was featured in."The Big Lebowski" (The amazing Coen Bros).
the character in the movie was Lt. john j dunbar...same,same
and besides Laura had already grabbed "Bluewolf" ..must be a democrat.
Hey, everybody's got a little "big Lebowski" in 'em

Sung by Kenny Rogers when he was good. I didn't like him when he went country. Even tho' he had more success.

It was one of my favorites, and I've never been able to find it on CD. One of these days, I'll figure out how to get my old scratchy vinyl onto CD...

I believe that is fairly simple to do. My computer-illiterate friend has a device for that. A technologically savvy person such as yourself should have no problem.

BTW, K Rogers recorded one of my uncle's songs. It was not a hit but he did get a royalty check for $31,000

If any music stores in your area deal with import CD'S, check with them. It might be available from Germany or Japan. They used to be the biggest for putting out music such as this, when the US was trying to put out current music. I'll try to do some research for you and let you know.

One other alternative is to try a music service like Rhapsody, Napster, Music Net etc.. Chances are good you will be able to find the album you want from one of the services, and then all you have to do is download it to your hard drive and burn it to CD. BTW all of the big music services give you a free trial so you can see if they have what you want before you spend any dough. Downloads usually run from .79 to $1.00 per song. One thing though, you must have a broadband connection (cable or DSL) and (obviously) you must have a CD-R/RW drive installed in your PC.

One other alternative is a peer to peer service like Morpheus (no charge for downloads), but there are are legal issues still unresolved as regard peer to peer music file sharing.

It would be great if you could find something. Believe it or not, I've done internet searches out the wazoo on the "Ballad of Calico". Couldn't find anything at all...

Just redid the search and found a guy that liked the album as much as I did:

I did some research and couldn't find it. Although Amazon has an import Best of First Edition that has one or two songs from that album. You may want to keep an eye on Ebay as well for it.

DG - Good Luck

I've got the album. Bought it brand new. Played it a lot. Cats claws got to the cover. It'd be nice if they'd release it on CD.

Thanks for looking!

My favorite from his early days when he was doing POP is "Washington Woman". Anyone remember that one? If that isn't a country song, I don't know what is.
