Bert and Ernie Fill in for Lefty: Traveling Wilburys - Vol. 3

Dave DiMartino, Musician, December 1990

His grandmother just bought him one of those kiddie cassette players for his birthday, so now I’m starting to make him tapes. I just played him an advance of the new Raffi, which is about the environment, and I’m not sure he liked it that much — too hard to understand and all.
