(Aug 23, 2013): Andy Pratt – Avenging Annie

K-SHE Classic.  From the 1973 self-titled album, Andy Pratt.  I knew Woody Guthrie sweetmeatbefore I knew Andy Pratt and was impressed when I first heard this and that a rocker in the early 1970s was using a Woody Guthrie song about Pretty Boy Floyd.  The way Pratt bends his voice throughout this LP is notable.  No doubt this is his best known song and I remember hearing it on many mornings as I was getting ready for middle school.   Roger Daltrey covered the tune in 1977 on his solo LP, One of the Boys.
