Sam Stone
Everybody knows this Vietnam era song written by John Prine. But the version I like best is by Swamp Dogg (not to be confused with Snoop Dogg). Swamp Dogg is a blues and soul performer from Los Angeles, I think, who also recorded a very moving rendition of "Synthetic World." I've seen him live twice and although his live performances are great, many of the songs he records are not to my liking. Do you have Swamp Dogg's recording of "Sam Stone" and "Synthetic World?"
