The Dutchman -1972

Long ago I used to be a young man
Dear Margaret remembers that for me.

Good to see your post about Michael Smith's "The Dutchman" as performed and recorded by Steve Goodman. Goodman often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in my 800-page biography, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the genesis of "The Dutchman" and the Goodman-Smith relationship, and Michael was key among my more than 1,050 sources.

You can find out more at my Internet site (below). Amazingly, the book's first printing sold out in just eight months, all 5,000 copies, and a second printing of 5,000 is available now. The second printing includes hundreds of little updates and additions, including 30 more photos for a total of 575. It just won a 2008 IPPY (Independent Publishers Association) silver medal for biography: To order a second-printing copy, see the "online store" page of my site. Just trying to spread word about the book. Feel free to do the same!
