Mid-Week Close the Door Song
Folk singer Eric Andersen's star rose in the early 1960's folk music boom, along with contemporaries Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Peter, Paul and Mary, Tom Paxton and many others. Many of Andersen's compositions were recorded by those same artists, who performed in the same Greenwich Village coffee houses as he did. One of his early songs that's been covered by dozens of other musicians is "Close The Door Lightly When You Go," a slow, wistful and bitter ballad about a lost love.
