Knowing Dick's ability at composing and arranging, the fact that he
might not have had the right changes to part of the tune doesn't bother
me at all. He would just have written other ones that would have made it
sound better anyway. Opinion by one who had the pleasure to be at
several of his "garage band" rehearsals in Sun Valley.
