Thread Name: Bill Staines and Paul McNeill
Subject: RE: Bill Staines and Paul McNeill
Paul was briefly under contract to MGM (long story) where he recorded one album that the buggers never released.

However, the late Chris Biggi of Sunset Ridge Recording Studios had hundreds of hours of Paul MacNeil, including probably every song he wrote before the beginning of this decade. The last I heard, Jaime Brockett was going to begin work on archiving this vast collection. Chris used to say that he could embarrass any folksinger who played in Boston in the '60s.

I haven't seen Paul for some ten years or so. He had been living in the Philippines for quite a while and may well be back there. He had a website a few years back, but I can't track it down any longer - Tom
