ESTIMATED PROPHET

During rehearsals for their joint 1987 tour, Bob Dylan picked up a notebook of Robert Hunter's lyrics at the Grateful Dead's studio. He set "Silvio" and "Ugliest Girl in the World" to music and included them both on Down in the Groove, much to Hunter's surprise and delight. Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Brent Mydland contributed background vocals to "Silvio."

Enjoy!!

same song

different names. Happens with folk songs. Also with tapers, especially when it's a song they don't know and they're grasping madly at any words they can hear!

Peggy-O or Fennario?!?

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between Peggy-O and Fennario? I've been trying to figure it out for over 20 years. Most of the time I see this song listed as Peggy-O, but every now and then I see it listed as Fennario. Yet, I can not distinguish anything to be different from one another......If you know more than I do, please share the knowledge.
