    First of all, love your blog (just discovered it while trying to track down -- successfully, for the first time -- the complete recorded output of Christopher Milk).

    And I'm about to download one of those Al Wilson interview LPs you posted about in December, and I'm wondering -- does it answer the question that has plagued me for decades? To wit -- who played the slide guitar(s) on his cover of "Lodi"?

    (For the record, here's how I speculated about it over at my blog a couple of years ago)

    Anyway, just curious, and thanks again for all the cool stuff you're posting...
