I tried my hardest to keep this to two minutes. Will the authorities allow it? I sure hope so. I like this song and it was super easy to write, which is rare for me. Let me know if the vinyl thing is charming or annoying. If the latter, I'll posted a "sans vinyl mix." Lyric in "more notes."

I like the vinyl, could be even more "tinny" like some of the early blues recordings, Leadbelly, Blind Lemon and the like.

I love the Dan Bern presentation. I don't like to use references like that but I can't avoid it, the dry whit and little side comments and all. I think the vinyl works well.

I spent a lot of time down there in NC, camping nearby, imagining the early flights. Also saw a huge pot recovery operation one night, with black vans carrying off dozens of huge bails off a cigarette boat that got stuck on the reef. HA! Reefer on the reef! Anyways...nice song.

Good song, good presentation. My only nitpick is that the very-American accent doesn't quite defeat the trademark FBF fake-English accent. Also, while the vinyl didn't bug me at all, I'm not sure it added anything either.

Ha. Close enough to two minutes for me. Sorry for the extreme delay in listening to this... This is a lot of fun. I don't really dig the vinyl scratches, or maybe it just needs to be toned down a little. The lyrics are clever and now I want to make a penny souvenir. All in all, I like this.

What a peculiar vocal delivery from you (i think the accent worked convincingly). Agreed with prior comments - the vinyl doesn't bother me so much as I don't think the mix as a whole sounds tinny enough to match it.

Liked the idea of making it sound like an old record. Guess the guitar and vocals sound somewhat too clean to make it entirely convincing. Still, fun 'n' good ole song.
