I like the "lineman" on the stark road...but it seems like he is on Mars.
Cowpoke...let me know if it is worth the read.
A whole book is pretty incredible.

Writer Dylan Jones wrote a whole book about one song we all know... The Wichita Lineman - Searching in the sun for the world's greatest unfinished song.
Made popular by Glen Campbell, the song was recorded in an unfinished form, but, as Jones authoritatively explores its creation, reception and near-mythic aftermath, one understands why none other than Bob Dylan referred to it as the greatest song ever written.
I never knew Bob Dylan said that!
