Hey Mark,

Thank you for the fine, concise and insightful review of my song, "Goodbye Doesn't Mean Goodbye". I am especially happy that it came from you and that you got the fact that I wrote a solid, real song that had a unique story . It was #1 on the Brioadjam - Country chart for several months. Now, all I need is to get it to the right country artists.... If you meet any in your travels keep the song in mind....

My best,

Chet Nichols

Hey Mark,

Thanks for the nice review of my "live" concert version of my song, "King Barlow". I used two harmonicas who I played that song at concerts. This version is the only surviving recording of me playing this song "LIVE". It was recorded at Cowtown Ballroom back in January of 1971. That night, little-old-me was saddled with the task of opening for The Kansas City Philharmonic Orchestra at Cowtown Ballroom. It was the first time in history when a philharmonic orchestra playing in a rock n' roll venue.

I was selected to do so because I was a classically trained cellist and pianist and the promoters felt I could perform a show that the young people and classical enthusiasts would enjoy. The whole show was captured on my CD, "Black & White".

It's an old recording, so it has a few issues and the mic spread it weird because the mics were spread very wide to accommodate the upcoming invasion of the orchestra players.....

Anyway, that is a little back-story to the tune about a king who, seeing the plight of his people, pushes away his riches and becomes a man-of-the-people, populist-outlaw.....
