A lot of these listings on discogs are just bedroom artists who released a self-recorded CD. But a few of these "snails" look like real bands: Snail(4) from Santa Cruz, Snail(5) from Seattle and Snail(17) from Corsica.

David Crosby doc: I liked him a long time ago. At the beginning of the doc, I thought, oh, he's okay, he's kind of good. Then as it progressed, I began to loathe him. there must be a reason his friends dislike him.

Bob Segarini appears on the soundtrack to Vanishing Point, a great, very Joe McGasko type of soundtrack. It also features a young Kim Carnes and Delaney and Bonnie.

aw, Thin White Rope were good! Were they despised, or just underappreciated?

The CSNY parody in "Lemmings" was brilliant, and the singer who voiced Croz was totally brilliant.

Dear Joe, I’ve been waiting for years, decades, for somebody to appreciate the Tammy version of Gentle on My Mind. My question has always been, did Mr Hartford write her version especially for Tammy?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am p20:

@RenoD: I'm not sure but after reading en.wikipedia.org... I don't think it was written for Tammy. A lot of other people recorded it before her - Glen Campbell, Dean Martin (!), Patti Page

As well as John Harford himself who won a Grammy for it. Tammy's recording was a bit later

The section in the Ken Burns documentary on George Jones and Tammy Wynette is wild and depressing. Their marriage ends with her saying that George cannot be happy and George repeatedly circling around their driveway in a zonked state of mind.

@p20, Yeah, the “female” lyric of Gentle is as brilliantly conceived and rendered as the familiar one. I tried to use the Tammy version as the opening title music for American Fabulous in 1991 and Sony Music said Ms Wynette wasn’t interested. Well!
