Going down a rabbit hole...

This is sort of SHS related but I can't think of a better place for it. Has this sort of thing ever happened to anyone else?


This all started earlier last night when I heard "Sunshine" by Jonathan Edwards on the radio on the way to work and it snowballed from there...

Listen to other songs he's done on YouTube

Find a really good one ("Don't Cry Blue")

Look for covers of said really good one

Find one on the album Homework by Tumbleweeds

Notice a Lefty Frizzell medley on that album

Go through that album to find other covers...


I've now added over a dozen related performances by probably at least as many artists, including two which appeared in a 1975 film I've never heard of, at least one other one that was also originally done by Jonathan Edwards...


The latest find is this great one from 1970:

After every door I open, there are 3 new doors. That's how I experience the SHS rabbit hole... Smile

I've encountered a situation where a single led me to another single, then that one to yet another single, then yet again.

Finally finding my way out of that rabbit hole (at least as far as Homework is concerned)... 8 new works added and over a dozen new performances.

Not counting a few versions I haven't added yet, we're now up to 6 covers of "Don't Cry Blue", including one from the songwriter himself recorded 35 years after the original.


Also did some more digging and found a bit of info about the songwriter. Apparently he now lives in Deerfield Beach, Florida and both he and Jonathan Edwards were members of a group called Sugar Creek in the late 60s.
