One of the fun things about The Flood is that our tunes evolve. For instance, we've been doing Bob Dylan's "Peggy Day" literally for decades now. Back in the late 1970s, when Rog Samples was still with us, we did a version of the song that was fairly close to Dylan's original release on the 1969 "Nashville Skyline" album. In the 1990s, when Chuck Romine and his happy tenor banjo were front and center in The Flood, "Peggy Day" took on an almost-Dixieland feeling. Now, with Michelle Walker adding so much interesting vocal counterpoint to Flood playlist, "Peggy Day" is back with a brand new do. Check it out.

We don't do many commercial country songs, but ever so often a country classic shows itself to have the potential to be Floodified. For a while now, Michelle's been humming and whistling that old great old Johnny Cash tune, "I Still Miss Someone," and lately it's begun to resonate with the rest of the guys. So last night, we took it around the block. Sure, an arrangement is still evolving, but in the spirit of these informal podcasts, we thought we'd offer this progress report from the Flood subcommittee.
