Frizz at FlkrComments played Midnight Special again and very nicely I might add. He included a number of terrific UTube versions as well. Why does Frizz feature the Midnight Special so prominently? Why does Bumba feel compelled to sing it too? What’s so special about the song anywaze? I think I must take the fifth on that one. Actually it’s the fourth: it’s the way the song goes into the fourth to start each verse. Anyhoo, if you’d like to help Bumba to finish off that fifth he was talking about, please sing along.

Featured below is not Leadbelly’s Midnight Special. It’s just the L.A. Metro Red Line as it pulled out of the Highland/Hollywood station. Sorry, but it’s the best I could do under the circumstances.
