    Thanks guys – great profile of an album I discovered in 1980. I saw him only once: San Francisco in the late 80s, mostly solo piano and guitar. No surpise – it was a great show!
    He was a unique songwriter and personality who pulled together an amazing array of talent for his albums. Read the liner notes!
    A few other things:
    1) He and REM also collaborated as Hindu Love Gods; don’t remember much about it except their cover of Raspberry Beret.
    2) I agree about learning lots of random trivia from song lyrics, a la Woodrow Wilson’s association with Veracruz
