And Grace loses out to Joni Mitchell. But that's the thing about folkies. They ALWAYS win on the lyrics. In terms of rock, Jim and Gracie were certainly at the top of the word-game. And I definitely agree Grace's lyrics are worth analyzing. I mean, White Rabbit's pretty obvious and we all know Rejoyce is a tribute to Ulysses. but her later songs/lyrics - Crazy Miranda, Fast Buck Freddie, Hey Frederick, Eskimo Blue Day... these are some really interesting poems. I'd love to see them dissected and discussed.
Now, much as I love Mary's singing, I can't really say the same for "It's no Secret"... heh heh heh....
