and you knew what a great guy Bill Paxton was , a loss too early , right ! Tom , you are wonderful as well !
See True Lies. Paxton is SO good in a supporting role. So many laughs early on, so much action later. Tom Arnold also great.
.Silent Running 1972, John Denver sings Tom Paxton's Whose garden was this? It must have been lovely.
Watching APOLLO 13 w/ tom hanks, Bill Paxton and Kevin Bacon. Gotta love all their movies!
So agree with . Watch True Lies again yesterday and that movie is comedy gold with Paxton. Also Tom Arnold.
Bill Paxton will forever go down in history as the only actor to be killed by an alien, a predator, a terminator and surgical complications.

Is that really the "Daily News" that Tom Paxton took exception to in his song all those years ago?

his first stop should be by Paxton Lynch's place and then the recruits we have waiting.
all the "allstar" games are senior only correct? We shouldn't expect Paxton to be in any of these ?

Paxton Lynch rolls right, keeps it himself. Memphis has 49 points with 20:34 left. It's 49-35.
Jamarius Henderson scampers for 28 yards. Paxton Lynch tried to throw a cut block on the safety on that one.
That's a beautiful 45-yard strike from Paxton Lynch to Mose Frazier, who was slow to get up after the play but just jogged to the sideline.
Judging by Paxton Lynch's reaction, I'd bet Memphis wasn't actually going for it. Wanted Tulsa to jump. And it did.
Should've been interception No. 2 there for Paxton Lynch, btw. Tulsa's safety got a great jump but just dropped it.
Paxton Lynch in the first first 23:21 of this game: 16 of 22, 243 yards, 3 TD. TD passes of 58, 45 and 21 yards. Pretty good.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze on Paxton Lynch: "He's one of the best quarterbacks I've seen in my time here."
Seems like a small play, but crucial throwaway by Paxton Lynch there. Avoided sack. Didn't turn it over. Kept Tigers in field-goal range.
Random aside: If Memphis wins this game, Paxton Lynch's already-rising draft stock is going through the roof.
Paxton Lynch to Mose Frazier. 31 yards out. In the words of Sweet Fancy Moses. Memphis leads, 31-14 w/ 11:31 left in 3Q.
Paxton Lynch could be Tom Brady if he won a bunch of Super Bowls and lost the 3 Musketeers mustache.
Paxton Lynch to Anthony Miller from 6 yards out. That's 24 unanswered points for Memphis. Just an incredible turnaround. It's 24-14 now.
Paxton now has as many completions (13) as he did total in last year's game in Oxford
That's Paxton Lynch's first interception of the season. He went 174 attempts between picks.

Dolly Rebecca Parton, DHL (born January 19, 1946) American singer-songwriter, instrumentalist, actress, author, and philanthropist, known primarily for her work in country music. Her career began as a child performer on the radio, then recording a few singles from the age of 13. She rose to prominence in 1967 as a featured performer on singer Porter Wagoner's weekly syndicated TV program; their first duet single, a cover of Tom Paxton's "The Last Thing on My Mind", was a top-ten hit on the country singles chart and led to several successful albums before they ended their partnership in 1974. Moving towards mainstream pop music, her 1977 single "Here You Come Again" was a success on both the country and pop charts. A string of pop-country hits followed into the mid-1980s, the most successful being her 1981 hit "9 to 5" (from the film of the same name) and her 1983 duet with Kenny Rogers "Islands in the Stream", both of which topped the U.S. pop and country singles charts. A pair of albums recorded with Lin ...
JODY MILLER Jody Miller (born November 29, 1941) is an American country music singer. Born Myrna Joy Miller, in Phoenix, Arizona, she was raised in Blanchard, Oklahoma, the youngest of five sisters. Career Discovered by actor Dale Robertson, she began her career in the early 1960s as a folk/pop singer, singing in the Los Angeles area and appearing on Tom Paxton's television series. She released her first album on Capitol Records in 1964 and had a modest pop hit that year with "He Walks Like a Man". In 1965, she participated in the San Remo Festival as a team companion of Pino Donaggio. Since the Festival was created as a composers' competition, Miller and Donaggio presented differently arranged versions of the entry "Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te)". The song came in on # 7 and was only a moderate hit until Dusty Springfield recorded an English version in 1966 which was eventually released as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me". Also in 1965, Jody Miller released an answer record to Roger Miller's blockbuster ...

Adelaide has a new small bar opening on July 19th. Bank Street Social is a new venture for three mates – Shaun Campbell, Tom Paxton, and Simon Orders. Who have given a long-vacated restaurant on Bank Street a new lease of life as a small bar. The fit out contains lashings of heavy timber beams (salvaged from an old granary in Queensland) and classic steel light fittings. The exposed brick wall, which looks like it was part of the original turn-of-the-century design, was actually retro fitted by the boys. Who roped in partners, friends and family to carry every one of the 7000 bricks down the stairs. The bar will have a heavy emphasis on South Australian craft beer, cider and wine. Australian spirits also feature prominently, with Single-Malt's from Tasmania, and Gin from Kangaroo Island (sounds like they need also need some isos vodka from the Hunter Valley, and Rum from FNQ to round out the Aussie spirit selection ;) We wish the boys all the best with their new venture.

A sad post. I just learned a good friend has passed today. Many of you might not know him by name, but an extremely talented singer by the name of Joe Frazier who spent so many years with the Chad Mitchell Trio passed today. He has been ill for about 2 years. Sadly I missed him on my last trip to CA in Aug. We were going to get together, but he was in rehab and wasn't up to it. I listen to his music frequently. Ironically, at the South Florida Folk Festival when Ron & Bari invited me up to sing with them, we sang Tom Paxton's 'Last Thing On My Mind', which was his solo in the early days of the trio. Joe helped push the trio to more political songs and was very much an activist and will be deeply missed by all of the lives he touched through his singing and later his ministry. RIP good friend.

Here's another piece I've written about music and racism. This time, its about the "Good Guys" ROCKERS AGAINST RACISM Last week, I wrote a piece about right-wing influenced music. This is to counter the assumption that all the artists of the 50s/60s were either indifferent to racism or part of the problem. The position of the folk artists like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton is well-known. All of them, and others, took part in Civil Rights protests and stood with Dr. King on his many rallies. Another staunch anti-racist and also very opposed to war was Bobby Darin. He recorded several songs opposing the Vietnam war and often gave his services free to anti-war fund raisers. There was also a story that when at a theatre where he was due to play, one of the technicians made an anti-Semitic remark. Bobby overheard him and knocked him out. The comic actor, Sid James was involved in a similar incident. In the 50s, many black artists suffered from the form of apartheid that operated in various par ...

This week’s Arts Tonight celebrates the life and legacy of legendary folk singer Pete Seeger, who died three weeks ago. We remember Pete through his great songs including “Turn Turn Turn”, “We Shall Overcome” and “If I had a Hammer”, amongst others. We talk to folk singer Tom Paxton, civil rights activist Eamon McCann, musician Tommy Sands, and we hear a special rendition of “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” with Charlie McGettigan and Eleanor Shanley. We also speak to Pete Seeger’s half sister Peggy from her London home, who has special memories of her big brother. And Jeff Place from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington tells us about the Seeger archive. Vincent Woods travelled to Drumshanbo to Charlie McGettigan’s studio to talk to Charlie and Eleanor.

Nothing like packing to make you realize how much you've gotten from friends over the years -- physically and metaphorically. As I was sorting the music books, CDs, LPs, and tapes into boxes, I came across the following: 1. "Gaudette 'Til You Drop" and "Shawn's Kugel/Most Precious of Days," holiday/solstice gifts on different years from Ulrika O'Brien, both of which I play often. 2. "Dr. Dancing Mask" and "House of Hearts," two self-produced tapes from Neil Kvern, both of which I've had with me since at least the 80s. 3. "Something To Sing About," the complete "Flanders & Swann," and the collected "Radio Ballads" of Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, each of which were given to me by Doug Faunt over the years, and each of which remain prized. 4. A signed copy of "And Loving You," a Tom Paxton tape acquired from him somewhere along the road, with enjoyment increased by backup vocals from Bob Gibson and Hamilton Camp. 5. The "Renaissance Singer" songbook. Many associations. 6. "Bossin's Generic Cassette," acqui ...

Tom Paxton on Pete Seeger. A terrific appreciation for |
Though I knew the end couldn't be far away for Pete Seeger (he was 94, after all), I nonetheless felt that pang you feel when you hear the news of the death of someone close to you. Though I never actually met him as I have many of the other folk luminaries of the 1960s, I still felt as though I had lost someone who had always been a part of my extended family. When I get news like this, I do feel that the Three Jolly Coachmen are playing a role, however small, in keeping the music alive. How fortunate I have been in being able to talk to, and in one case actually perform with, some of the these people: Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey, Tom Paxton, Chad Mitchell, Mike Kobluk, Tommy Makem, Lou Gottlieb, Alex Hassilev, Bob Shane, George Grove ... and of course, Joe Frazier, who fulfilled a true folk music lover's dream by singing with my Southern California group off and on for four years. Didn't really share his politics, but loved the messages and tunefulness of his songs, not the least of which was the cl ...
We have people that come into our lives at different times and for different reasons and they go the same way. I had one such friend when I was 16. My dad took a job in Jacksonville, Fl and move the family there in January of 1966. I was not happy. After enrolling at Terry Parker, i met kids by being in the chorus. One of those was Dan Ewton. We found out the we liked a lot of the same things, mostly playing the guitar. We also found out the we had the same kind of wicked, twisted,innocent teenage sense of humor. Lots of American Graffiti growing up(before the movie). No hot rods, a Carmen Ghia and his dad's red 2 door Volvo! Great memories were made. I have spoken over the years about my guitar heroes, Clapton, Stills,Allman, Betts, but one guy that was a guitar influence would be Dan. We listened to Peter Paul and Mary, Tom Paxton, Chad Mitchell Trio, Phil Ochs,and just for fun, Bill Cosby. I just found out that he passed away December 2, 2013. Thanks Dan.
I am now watching "Sleepless in Seattle." Somebody knew I had to lighten up. I saw this movie so many times when it first came it I could not watch it any more. Now I can. I also bought the soundtrack, which I adored more than the movie. This was, to my way of thinking anyway, a perfect offering to the gods of Romance and Comedy. One of the most perfect scenes is at the dinner table with Meg Ryan, Tom Paxton and David Hyde Pierce (how many degrees of separation...let's see...Bill-Oneonta; David-Saratoga..can't claim to have known either, but...)...anyway..love it love it love it!!
Have you seen "Inside Llewyn Davis," the new Coen brothers' film about 1960s Greenwich Village? Well, one of the featured songs is "Last Thing on My Mind," a classic Tom Paxton song. It's a tune Twangdogs played back in June at the Old Town School of Folk Music, as part of the "Freewheelin' Folk" tribute concert honoring the music of Greenwich Village. Here's our rendition.
♫ "The forest had trees, the meadows were green // The oceans were blue, and birds really flew // Can ya swear that was true?" ♫ -Tom Paxton
MY BRIEF TAKE ON 'INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS' i can see someone being depressed by it -- i coulda used a couple of shots of 'mighty wind' lightness myself -- reminds u that for every folk music star there were 20 who didnt become stars -- i coulda used more music and less uhhh character development -- main character not endearing -- he is funny when he mocks out the tom paxton character -- also=f murray abraham has one fantastic line as an albert grossman character in Chicago -- if this main davis character is based on Dave Van Ronk's semi-autobiography, which i have not read, then it is a very safe bet that van ronk didnt indulge in auto-hagiography

Tom Paxton - High Sheriff Of Hazard lyrics and translations
One of the more hard hitting songs from the set was "Lyndon Johnson told the nation" (Tom Paxton)
Skipping by "Sounds of Japan: Actuality Sounds" we reach Tom Paxton's second Elektra LP, "Ain't That News"
TONIGHT (SUNDAY) December 22, 7pm at Smoken Joe's BBQ and Blues-- Geoff Bartley and Special Guests--A nationally respected folk/blues guitar player, harmonica player, songwriter, and singer, Geoff Bartley has been called both a prophet and the “Godfather of the Boston Folk Scene”. He is best known for his prolific writing (having songs performed by the likes of Mary Black and John Gorka) and touring as a soloist and accompanist for Tom Paxton. He plays some mean acoustic blues and smoken’ bluegrass, too. Each week he is joined by a special guest ( or two).

David Kenneth Ritz "Dave" Van Ronk (June 30, 1936 – February 10, 2002) was an American folk singer, born in Brooklyn, New York, who settled in Greenwich Village, New York, and was eventually nicknamed the "Mayor of MacDougal Street". He was an important figure in the acoustic folk revival of the 1960s. His work ranged from old English ballads to blues, gospel, rock, New Orleans jazz, and swing. He was also known for performing instrumental ragtime guitar music, especially his transcription of St. Louis Tickle and Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag. Van Ronk was a widely admired avuncular figure in "the Village", presiding over the coffeehouse folk culture and acting as a friend to many up-and-coming artists by inspiring, assisting, and promoting them. Folk performers whom he befriended include Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Patrick Sky, Phil Ochs, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Guthrie Thomas, and Joni Mitchell. Van Ronk received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (AS ...
If you see me passin' by And you sit and you wonder why And you wish that you were a rambler too Nail your shoes to the kitchen floor, lace 'em up, bar the door And thank the stars for the roof that's over you. Tom Paxton "Where I'm Bound"
She had no idea that tonight's soundtrack in my head was Tom Paxton.
Tom Hornsey loves Paxton Lynch for giving him the opportunity to win the Ray Guy award.
I watched the new flick "Inside Llewelyn Davis" on an Academy screener last night. As a 60's folk musician myself, it bowled me over. Opens this Friday. Another Coen Bros. masterpiece. Don't miss it, especially if you're into Woodie, Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Doc Watson, Tom Paxton, Paul Simon, Joni, the Byrds, etc.
This is near contemporaneous live take of the title track "Ramblin' Boy" - Tom Paxton with Pete Seeger
But there were other good songs in the set like "Can't help but wonder where I'm bound" (Tom Paxton)
Tom Paxton's "Ramblin' Boy" was his second studio album but first for a major folk label (and Elektra could certainly be called that)
I'll post my "10 Albums" list. Of course, in my head, all 10 should be Beatles albums, but I don't think that would make for an interesting list. I listed these in the order I thought of them, so don't think I'm ranking them in any order. And had I made the list an hour ago, or an hour from now, I'm sure it would be completely different. Abbey Road (Beatles) Politics (Tom Paxton) Songs for the Daily Planet (Todd Snider) August and Everything After (Counting Crows) Before these Crowded Streets (Dave Matthews) Saved (Bob Dylan) Achtung Baby (U2) Demons and Wizards (Uriah Heep, and yes it's a guilty pleasure) All Things Must Pass (Harrison) The Future That Was (Josh Joplin Group)

Review – Baskerville Hall Acoustic Wednesday – 18/12/13 It was a dark and stormy night….. The weather was so bad when I left home last evening that I nearly turned around and gave up. Rain hammering, trees down, traffic crawling etc etc. However, I am very glad that I persevered because I had a lovely time at the Hall with Jamie Thomas (flute, guitar, vocal) and about half of the Fireside Family – Peter (guitar, vocal), Bran (vocal) and Damian (vocal) and we had a terrific time playing all sorts of original and borrowed material for an admittedly small, but enthusiastic, audience. Bran, Jamie and I debuted new material and we managed a Tom Paxton tribute selection, Scarlet Ribbons, some humorous songs and an indescribable, heartfelt rendering of “Alouette”. Enormous thanks to Bran, Peter, Damian Jamie, and Paul Redman and Maureen for braving such a filthy night. Thanks, as always, to David for the hospitality. Next Wednesday is Christmas Day – so no session next week. However we will be back ...
Elijah Wald: The Digital Folk Life Interview [Elijah Wald is the unobtrusive editor of the series of interviews, from a number of cited sources, which became The Mayor of MacDougal Street, the richly rambling memoir of Dave Van Ronk, who was the first white bluesman to incorporate and adapt the music of the Rev Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, and other African-American bluesmen into the mingled tradition of American folk music which became known as “The Great Folk Scare” of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s – one of the periodic “revivals” of the genre, often involving left-wing politics along with “pop” music aspirations on the part of some of its adherents; one need only mention Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, on the one hand, and Tom Paxton or Ewan MacColl on the other. How did Elijah Wald come to be involved with Van Ronk, by some accounts a gruff, sardonic figure who had “a talent a yard wide and an ego to match”? Or was that a complete misreading of a kind and gentle mensch, wh ...
I just spent the worst 36 hours of my life. On an Amtrak train yesterday, suddenly doubled over in pain, taken off on a stretcher, spent a day in the worst hospital I've ever been in - with a kidney stone. All this after playing a wonderful show at The Birchmere with Uncle Bonsai and Tom Paxton. The west coast Just One Angel shows this weekend in Oregon are canceled. I am so sorry -- I checked myself out of the hospital against their wishes, flagged a cab and paid him $300 to drive me back to NYC (after retrieving my luggage at the Amtrak station where my guitar and suitcase were being held in 'lost and found'). Yesterday was the worst day of my life, today is not much better, but I'm home. Please read up on kidney stones and look for the warning signs. They say it's as painful -- or more painful -- than childbirth. Since I don't have kids, I just look at all you Moms with great respect and wonder, especially those of you who have given birth to more than one. I apologize for screwing up the west coa ...
Center for the Arts of Homer, Inc December 11 Jaime Brockett & Cormac McCarthy in a Special Thursday Night Free Concert On Thursday December, 19 at 7 pm, the Center for the Arts of Homer offers up its final Free Concert of the season featuring Maine-based singer-songwriter Cormac McCarthy and New England folk-singer icon, Jaime Brockett. Jaime Brockett enjoyed cult status in the 1969-early 1970s era of folk music. On his debut album, “Remember the Wind and the Rain”, he sings and plays guitar, banjo, and dulcimer. Brockett was a favorite of devotees of late night progressive rock FM radio stations, particularly with his thirteen minute long adaptation of Lead Belly’s (via Blind Lemon Jefferson) "The Titanic", rechristened The Legend of the U.S.S. Titanic, co-written with Chris Smither. His music ranges from talking blues to country to folk. He can be humorous or heartfelt, but he is always honest. In 1968 Broadside magazine selected Brockett as the number one male Boston performer, he was also selec ...

Dave Van Ronk's Ex-Wife Takes Us Inside Inside Llewyn Davis Friday, Dec 13, 2013 at 10:15 AM By Terri Thal In the movie, no one is nice. There are hints of friendliness in the Tom Paxton character and in Jim, who gets Davis some studio backup work (which didn't exist for folk musicians at that time). Everyone is somewhat dumb and somewhat mean. There's no suggestion that these people love the music they play, none that they play music for fun or have jam sessions, not a smidgen of the collegiality that marked that period. Musicians supported each other. David and I had hordes of people in our apartment several times a week, many of them folksingers, many of them uninvited drop-ins who always were welcomed. I cooked; we talked politics; the musicians played. They introduced new songs and arrangements and often jammed. We had fun. If a new club opened, folksingers told each other about it and recommended one another to the club owner. When a new coffeehouse in Pennsylvania stiffed David, Tom Paxton refused ...

Tom Paxton - Gettin' Up Early lyrics and translations
We still have some more tickets to give away to tomorrow's screening of Inside Llewyn Davis! Did we mention that the film features the music of Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Tom Paxton, and The Punch Brothers? Or that this movie is going to be really great and probably win a bazillion awards? If you'd like to attend, please leave a message in the comments here or write to infoindicating if you would like one or two tickets. We will notify winners before noon tomorrow. The screening is at 7:30pm at the Ritz Five theater in Philadelphia.
Sorry, but those kinds of jokes always bring back Tom Paxton's retelling...
Listening to the Inside Llewelyn Davis soundtrack. I love this music -- 60s folk is the music most embedded in my heart. Lots of coffeehouse stools and girls in turtleneck sweaters and my well-weathered Harmony guitar come to mind. Van Ronk, Ed McCurdy, Tom Paxton, PP&M, Phil Ochs, Odetta ... I wore that vinyl out listening and learning.

Just listening to "I'm Changing My Name to Chrysler" as recorded by Arlo Guthrie. In the third verse he stops the song to give a shout out to Tom Paxton, the songwriter. And in "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" David Allan Coe acknowledges Steve Goodman and the additional verse he wrote at David's urging. Can anyone think of any other songs where an artist gives a wink and nod to the songwriter?

Terri Thal tells the truth about the wonderful Folk Music scene in the Village in the 1960's. To me it is a very accurate and intelligent interview. Thanks Terri!! From Terri: Here's a piece I wrote after I saw "Inside Llewyn Davis." The Village Voice published it on line and it will be in the print paper that will appear next Wednesday. I wrote it, then decided to try to get it published. To my delight, I found journalists were as supportive of me as folksingers were of each other in the world that I wrote about. So, for their advice and encouragement, I thank: - Steven Marsh, who writes an excellent, intelligent blog on music, theater and other performing arts. It's called "Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?" (Katie Calautti, whom I met at a screening of the movie and who wrote a piece on it for "Vulture," "New York Magazine's" blog. (- Tony Scaduto, whom I've known since he wrote the first biography of Bob Dylan in 1972. - John Morthland, whom I've never met but wrote to because I liked his article on Dav ...

Inside Llewyn Davis Soundtrack Vedict: Saccharin, Inconsequential, Irrelevant! It's hardly any wonder that the Coen Brothers lined the Town Hall concert "celebrating" their forthcoming opus "Inside Llewyn Davis" - VERY loosely based on Dave Van Ronk's "The Mayor of Bleeker Street" - with celebrities: the actual soundtrack for the movie is a joke. "Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song)" done by faux folk artist Marcus Mumford is a saccharin performance of absolutely no consequence. The original version as performed by Bob Dylan was an emotional, edgy tune. Mumford turned it into a syrupy sleeper. Likewise the rolling yet heartbreaking Tom Paxton tune "Last Thing On My Mind" is turned into just another piece of pop pablum by Stark Sands and the Punch Brothers. Oscar Issac's "Green Green Rocky Road" at least vaguely approaches Van Ronk's version, but it too is delivered in a halting, less than convincing performance. Space here prohibits me from describing all the songs but the answer is simple: listen to the ...

Woodrow Wilson "Woody" Guthrie was an American singer-songwriter and folk musician whose musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children's songs, ballads and improvised works. He frequently performed with the slogan This Machine Kills Fascists displayed on his guitar. His best-known song is "This Land Is Your Land." Many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress. Such songwriters as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Pete Seeger, Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg, Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy, Bob Childers and Tom Paxton have acknowledged Guthrie as a major influence.
On his 77th birthday, I'd like to share the poem I wrote when Dave Van Ronk passed from this earth. When I was seventeen and first trying to figure out how to make those six pieces of wire make something resembling music, my older sister handed me his album and said "He's the finest guitar player around". She was so right. His playing was emotionally honest and powerfully dedicated to both his friends and folk tradition. Tom Paxton claimed that Dave was the most widely read person he had ever met. Happy Birthday Mayor Van Ronk! Dave Van Ronk Today, the big guy is gone. White boy that kept the blues alive in New York, could sing everything from Joni to Big Joe his hulking frame fixed in a permanent caress of that Gibson Jumbo We hunkered in a booth together, once, in Austin listening to Nanci Griffith at Emma Joe's.

Really! Still no one has revealed the mystery harmonica musician who's also in the Rock Hall of Fame through his excellent rock band on the Doors Roadhouse Blues. He's a native New Yorker who was a folk musician like so many musicians in the early 60s playing in Greenwich Village with Bob Dylan, the recently departed Richie Havens, Dave Van Ronk, John Phillips, Denny Doherty, Cass Elliott, Joan Baez, Odetta, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs and others. The 1964 British invasion made him switch to rock like so many other American folk musicians. Phillips, Doherty, Elliott and Phillips wife Michelle went to form the Mamas and the Papas. As I have already said in a previous post, the Mamas and the Papas mention him in their great 1967 autobiographical song Creeque Alley. If anyone wants to, you can go back on my FB page back in March or April 2012 to look at the lyrics of Creeque Alley. Anyway, if no one gets it, I will reveal this musician to all tonite!
We were at the WFMA benefit concert held at the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center this evening: Mack Bailey, Buskin & Batteau, Christine Lavin, Noel Paul Stookey, and Tom Paxton. Enjoyed it very much! Ran into people that I know, was spotted by a former game show host (county cable) and coworker, and espied a former boyfriend and his wife. Had to park a little further than usual. Lots going on on campus: two weddings, a soccer game (to which tickets were being scalped and whose attendees left the parking lot a mess), and the concert.

With all the crap going on in this country and this world, I have one question. Whatever happened to the singer songwriters like we had years ago who wrote the so called protest songs we grew up with? I'm talking about the likes of Dylan, Donovan, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, John Lennon, Tom Paxton, Woody Guthrie, PP&M and many many others. They who brought attention to how f&*%up this world was then and continues to be now. Where is the new generation that can continue what they all started? Lord knows they're needed.

The history of Heartbreak Hotel    By Spencer Leigh  Published: 24 March 2006    Fifty years ago, on 12 May 1956, Elvis Presley made his UK chart debut with "Heartbreak Hotel". Up until then, the rock'n'roll records in the Hit Parade had been good-time novelties, but Presley's brooding presence and his menacing arrangement changed that. Popular music would never be the same again, but how did Presley come to make such a groundbreaking record?    Elvis Presley started recording for Sam Phillips' Sun label in Memphis in July 1954. Working with two country musicians, Scotty Moore on lead guitar and Bill Black on stand-up bass, the first single was "That's All Right". Selling heavily in the South, Elvis Presley made the US country Top 10 with the hiccuping "Baby Let's Play House" and followed it with an echo-drenched ballad, "I Forgot To Remember To Forget".   The folk singer Tom Paxton recalls an early concert: "Elvis was so new that the promoters didn't know what he was and so the supporting bill wa ...

ANYWHERE (1975) On the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway in July, a man in the long black coat comes running to me, desperation in his eyes. “Do you know what happened?” he implores. “Where?” I ask. The man pauses and looks at me as if I have asked a naïve question. “Anywhere!” he shrieks and runs off, before I can think of an answer. I am making a list, should I run into him again. THE MUSIC ELEGIES: Phil Ochs (1976) I hear the news lying in the loft bed, awakening from a nap to the radio. “Death of a folksinger,” the announcer says, and I tense waiting to hear which one. It’s you, Phil. I think of the first time I saw you perform, in 1963 at the Gaslight (you shared the bill with Tom Paxton and John Hammond), how you strummed between songs and I got the feeling new songs were forming even as you performed the old ones. And the time you were sitting near me at a bar in the Village, talking politics with some people whose names I probably knew: “What we need is an armed army of Trots ...

for Studies In American Music Conservatory of Music, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York NEWSLETTER Volume XXXV   No. 2    Spring 2006   Staging the Folk: New York City’s Friends of Old Time Music by Ray Allen     The cultural revolution of the Sixties was waiting to happen when Bob Dylan arrived in Greenwich Village in late January  1961.  In Chronicles: Volume One, he recalls that up and down MacDougal Street one could hear angst-ridden beat poets, modern jazzers, and subversive comedians. But it was Dylan’s passion for folk music that drew him to clubs and coffeehouses like the Café Wha?, the Gaslight, Gerdes Folk City, and the Village Gate that were overflowing with musicians eager to carve out a place in the burgeoning folk music revival.  There Dylan could hear a wide range of styles that at that time fell under the folk umbrella: the slick arrangements of the Journeymen and the Clancy Brothers; the edgy topical songs of Tom Paxton and Len Chandle ...

James Lee Stanley is back and he's better than ever. This man is a delight to behold on stage. His candor and humor are really refreshing and his musical artistry shines. Born in Philadelphia, PA, he has been recording and performing since he was fourteen. He has toured consistently since he returned from the USAF (as a Chinese linguist) and has performed up to three hundred dates a year since then with such diverse acts as BONNIE RAITT, ROBIN WILLIAMS, NICOLETTE LARSON and even BILL COSBY. STEVEN WRIGHT chose James Lee as his opening act for three years in a row; a testament to his professionalism and talent. He's recorded collaborative CDs with Peter Tork (of the Monkees), Cliff Eberhardt (master East Coast songwriter), John Batdorf, Michael Peter Smith (who just happens to be our theme artist this week), and Tom Paxton. A well rounded and well traveled individual, his music is shaped by his many experiences and influenced by all the great singer/songwriters of the past. Come enjoy an evening of musi .. ...
