Known more for his truck drivin songs, this Maine born Country legend also did a version of "Snap Your Fingers" for Capitol Records back in 1971. Dick's version of course does away with the swooning horns giving a more down home accompaniment to his wretchedly perfect voice. He also takes the song down a note or two to showcase his deep baritone voice, which makes me think of a bullfrog with an eye patch singin in some animated disney-esque 'saloon in the woods' short cartoon. This is prolly my favorite version of the song that I have heard because he brings so much character to the piece, almost mocking the tone of it with complete sincerity and dexterity. Here is a nice bio on Dick from Wang Dang Dula (a tremendously helpful resource).
