Powderfinger is a great song Eric.
I really like the Cowboy Junkies rendition of it on the Caution Horses album.

I remember catching my first Musky in the 70's on one of the nearby lakes. :^).
When it came time to mix the tracks of his first album, Neil was somewhat insecure about his voice, and placed the vocal track down "into" the mix. Early LP pressings of the album contain that mix. With the reaction to the album---very positive---he reconsidered, and went back in and did a second mix, this time with his voice riding higher. All subsequent LP pressings contain that second mix. I don’t know how one can identify LPs containing the original mix. I like vocals low in the mix, not just of Neil, but in general. One thing I dislike about The Beatles records is how far "above" the instruments are the vocals---very Pop. George Martin was not a Rock ’n’ Roll producer.
I like when artists discuss stories about their instruments.

I did want him to get into more detail about how the one guitar got that "high heel" mark
