Someday Soon

Ian Tyson wrote the original, though Judy Collins brought it higher up the charts.  I sang this in high school with Christine Riley.

When they flip over the album cover and show the notes on the back at about the 1:30 mark I was nostalgic for the times.  Lots of folk albums looked like that on the back in those days, text-heavy. Nerdy people would remember the information without even trying, such as we are, and recall thoroughly useless bits decades later.

Ian Tyson also wrote "Four Strong Winds," one of my favorites. [True confession for chronological context: I graduated HS in 1964.] They had a beautiful harmonic blending of voices. I have the original album "Early Morning Rain" on vinyl in a basement box.

PS: I also have Tom Rush, Dave Van Ronk, The New Christy Minstrels, The Kingston Trio, Buffy Ste. Marie, and a bunch of others.... : )

I only knew the Suzy Boggus cover until you posted this. Have you heard it? It's one of my favorite songs from that period of country music.

The best version of this I've heard is Moe Bandy's from the late 70s. I knew he did not originally do the song but I like it much more than the Suzy Boggus version. Until now I had not heard the original and only heard Judy Collins version a couple of times. Thanks for posting it.
