Great idea Bruce. I have made sound files that is wav files and then converted them to mp3 before but still don't know if I have gone about the whole thing the right or rather the best way. I would be interested in learning how to do it here on ED. So by all means a step-by-step.

Thanks to FolkFan's eagle eye, I just won an Ebay bid for the Sweetwater CD which features "Five Pounds of Possum". The seller was Cindy Funk, one of the members of Sweetwater. Eat your (possum) heart out Marc LOL! Actually, once I learn it I'll call you up and play it for you Wink

Good for you Ken!! I'm sure you'll have alot of fun with that tune. I was going to order that CD someday from Sweetwater. I haven't been on e-bay for so-o-o long now that I don't know what's on there anymore. That'd be cool to hear your version of the tune sometime. Smile Yeah -yeah...... I'll be eating my (possum) heart out up here while you're enjoying your new CD .. LOL!

Hey Ken When I went to the Buckeye Dulcimer Fest Cindy was my instructor and she is talented and very witty. I have also taken workshops with Shelly Stevens another member of the group. I picked up 4 of their tapes at at a festival(they were on sale) and have really been enjoying them. Does the CD have "The 5 Constipated Men of the Bible" on it, that has to be one of the funniest songs I have ever heard. Dave

Got that Sweetwater album - Sing No Evil - absolutely hilarious. Run, do not walk to their website and order that CD. You'll laugh yourself silly. Not just Five Pounds of Possum, but the ballad of I'lene, the two legged dog; Five Constipated Men of the Bible, and over a dozen more of the funniest songs I've heard in decades!!

Ken, I'm so glad you're enjoying the Sweetwater CD. I met them years ago in Ohio at a festival and have enjoyed their music ever since. Play on, FF

Just don't get to know them too well. We've known the ladies for several years and I received the 'honor' of being the 'Little Blue Man' at the Chestnut Ridge festival a couple of years ago. It was hilarious for all concerned.

Sounds like fun Mike. That was the only cut I'd heard before. Was it Doris Day that did Little Blue Man originally? I remember hearing it as a kid...

As I remember Doris Day's Little Blue Man was different than the Sweetwater version. In fact, I would have said that they were 2 different songs with the same title or subject. But it's been many years since I heard the Doris Day version. Play on. FF. Anyone who wants information on Sweetwater's CD's can go to www.sweetwaterfolk.com

Sing no Evil......

Postby Marc Mathieu » Tue Jul 15, 2003 12:04 am

Hi All ! Just received from the VERY KIND DaveF, Sweetwater's "Sing no Evil" recording. Thanks Dave !! Wink Those ladies certainly do a great job of "5lbs of Possum" !! It's a great compilation of hilarious songs LOL! Truly enjoy all the songs on that tape & listen to it over & over. I would love to see them in concert. They would provide the very best in "laughter therapy". Probably would leave the concert hall with a sore rib cage from laughing so much. LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! I believe that "Sing no Evil" is a great addition to anyone's music collection ! Wink
