Singer/Songwriter/Musician, The best part about what I do is absorbing what others do and learning from them, whether good or bad. I'm a self taught musician so it's been fun listening to the development. Thanks BJ

Hi Les,

Say, thanks for the Joni Mitchell note....I think she is doing well....at least that is what I heard from David Crosby yesterday.

Also, THANKS for the nice review of the "live" version of my old blues/hippie anthem, "I'm The Ice Cream Man". It was recorded "live" at the infamous Cowtown Ballroom in Kansas City back on 9/11/1971.
The recording was not the best, but pretty good...lots of interference from a radio station antenna 200 years away from the club and the recording board was a bit squirrely..... but it is a fun song and very popular "Back Then"......although, today, it would be considered as "politically incorrect". Is this world screwed up or what? This was actually a song I wrote back in 1963 when I was a busboy in an ice cream shop in the center of town. I was 13....and would play on Sunday to the ice cream crowd....then go clean the tables. No rest for the weary. It was a simple blues song.....that morphed when the late 60's came along and I was touring, I added the spicy and fun talking blues part about a "street corner ice cream salesman"....who sold ice cream and MORE.

Anyway, glad you liked the song. It comes from the only "live" show that made it through the years and the CD is entitled, "Black & White".

This and all my albums are available at Broadjam.

Best to you,

Chet Nichols

Les - Thank you for reviewing my song, "Everybody's Got A Story," I really appreciate it. I'm sorry there wasn't a full band added, my budget didn't allow for it unfortunately. Much continued success to you. ~ Nick
