Far Away, Long Ago is my second collection of songs which is a mix from past and present, original and cover, traditional and brand-new. In keeping with a wish to recapture my unrecorded older material, there are two songs from 1974, balanced with three from 2015-16. The older material includes two re-recordings of songs from my 1994 CD, Dreams of the Songdog, along with a pop standard from 1946, as well as a few tunes, upgraded from my rock and roll "dark ages"; old wine in new bottles. The covers are by Dayna Kurtz, Jack Hardy, Henry Gross/Jack Lawrence, and a revisitation of a folk song, "John Henry".
