  • Beginning is music from Parran, J.D. so I cut that; the recording gets cut at 27:56 and has wind noise; after Till the Doctor Comes J.D. Plays music without Arthur (or so much louder that I can't tell whether Arthur is speaking) so I cut it out of the recording; many of the recordings are Brown and Parran performing together; Recording gets cut in the middle of "Cherokee Bill" at 53:32
