Here are the results so far:

Showdown #1
Old Dan's Records 16 Uncle Toad Said 2

Showdown #2
If You Could Read My Mind 13 Harmony 1

Showdown #3
Drifters 12 Stay Loose 6

Showdown #4
Hangdog Hotel Room 10 Betty Called Me In 5

Showdown #5
Slide on Over 10 Blackberry Wine 5

Showdown #6
Sea of Tranquility 8 Triangle 6

Wow, I'm surprised. I thought that Triangle would win. I've always enjoyed Sea of Tranquility too. I just had the feeling from reading on this BB that Triangle was a real crowd favourite. This is the first showdown where I was suprised by the outcome. I think the next one might be hard to predict too. These two songs are connected because they both describe interesting gentlemen who wander the countryside. Which song do you enjoy the most:

Don Quioxte

or

Minstrel of the Dawn

Have fun.

DQ .... but I agree, this is the hardest "two horse" race in the Showdowns thus far ...

Love 'em both but I've gotta go with:

DON QUIXOTE !

Bill

Regarding your surprise I think you'd get different results if all 1200+ Members could be polled. We repeat offenders tend to be somewhat 'opinionated', LOL.

Sorry, just can't do this one. They are equal in my mind. Like choosing a child. I simply can't place one over the other.

Close call, but "Minstrel of the Dawn" just! I love the acoustic section midway through as the song kicks into life.

Bu if this one is any more than a few votes either way, I'd still say it's the closest two songs yet. If that makes any sense... :D

Minstrel for me.

While I was performing, I used to start with his one.

Not original, I know, but I liked the song.

This is a tough one, pitting two of GL's very best songs against one another. They both show how truly beautiful a guitar can sound. Since you're twisting my arm for a choice between the two, I pick...Minstrel of the Dawn.
