This week’s Mary Monday is courtesy of Robert Fripp. You can consider him a Two for Tuesday artist too. Here are two versions of the same song from Exposure. The first one is sung by Terre Roche, the second by Daryl Hall.

Your famous Mary of the week is the steamboat Mary Powell.
“Probably no boat on the river, and for that matter anywhere in this country, ever became such a prime favorite as the “Mary Powell.” She was always a favorite among the river fleet and became a part of the social life along the river, and for fifty-six years carried her passengers daily between river points in quiet comfort, and at a speed never equaled by more modern steamers.”
