It's A Sin To Tell A Lie

This song is associated with Fats Waller, though he did not write it, Billy Mayhew did.  If you prefer his version, or Billie Holiday's, I won't call you wrong.

But I put this out because I had not realised Steve Goodman from Chicago (died young, featured here before) was this good a guitarist. Because Arlo played the "City of New Orleans" and it has been covered more by folk and country artists since I thought if Goodman was good, it would be in one of those styles, not jazz.
