Musical Notes:

“Knotty Pine” is a song by the Dirty Projectors and David Bryne for an excellent compilation called Dark was the Night.  The compilation is produced by Red Hot, “a not-for-profit production company that has produced 20 albums and dedicated more than 10 million dollars to worthy organizations, causes and pro-social projects around the world.  Its mission is to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues.”  The lyrics for this song where written by David Bryne sometime in 1975 or 1976, but had never set to music.  The Dirty Projectors composed the music which Byrne described as a “bouncy little tune” on his blog.
