Steve Goodman's 1971 self-titled album marked the debut of a great new songwriter. City of New Orleans," which was (then) soon to be a hit for Arlo Guthrie, is the obvious standout, and "You Never Even Call Me by My Name," later a country hit by David Allan Coe in a revised version, is also impressive, but "I Don't Know Where I'm Goin', but I'm Goin' Nowhere in a Hurry Blues". and "Would You Like to Learn Dance?" also show off different sides of this versatile talent
