To answer some of this question (800 pages worth) check out Clay Eals' just released new biography called "Steve Goodman--FACING THE MUSIC." I'm 100 pages into my copy and I can't put it down.
Just a beautifully done totality.

It was a grand time when some people actually acted like they had common sense.

Many of us knew enough, when faced with an insane war and demented leaders, not to go!

Can't disagree with you on that, Art, but it seems that insane wars and demented leaders, like the poor, are always with us.

I went to me wee book from the days when I ran a club in Kew, and looked at the names in there. Some of whom sank without trace, some are still around, and a few have gone to their maker.
John Pearse, Mike Absolom, Don Partridge, Terry Gould, Terry Masterson, Jack King, Lisa Turner[d], The Coal Creeks, Mike Ritman, Terry Mundy, Steve Benbow [d], Alan Young, The Beggermen, Roger Evans [d], Ron Geesin, Dennis O'Brien, Cliff Aungier [d].
On 3ed January 1968 I paid Noel Murphy 8 Guineas for an evening at the club, 14th Feb 1968 Hedy West £20, and 28th Feb Derek Brimstone £10.

Giok

I googled on "Don Partridge" because I thought he'd been getting about on the music scene relatively recently, and found this on Wikipedia:

"By 2004, veteran Irish DJ Terry Wogan was musing about Partridge's existence on his daily breakfast BBC Radio 2 programme. The belated revival of interest in Partridge's work was given a further boost by the inclusion of his song "Breakfast on Pluto", in the soundtrack to the 2005 film, Breakfast on Pluto.

In the same year Partridge undertook a UK tour as support for the indie pop / trip hop duo, known as Lemon Jelly. Reviews of their performances on 11 and 16 March 2005 at the Brixton Academy, London."

That's interesting. In 1967, I was one of the residents at the Surbiton club, and Derek Sarjeant started taking me round on some of his gigs. I would get up and do a couple of songs as part of Derek's set. I did this at the Hole in the Wall in Chichester, and in the interval they asked if they could book me in my own right. "How much do you charge?" they said. "How much do I charge?" I asked Derek. "How much do you earn a week in your job?" he replied. "Eight quid", says I. "Well, that's what you charge for a gig then" he retorted.
So first ever paid gig, and I got a week's wage. That was the formula back then. Translate that to today's values, and you'll see that artists' fees have not really kept pace.

Great to hear from you and Margaret, Jack.

Finding the Cellar at CSH in my teen years changed so many things. And I'm still at it.

That last line up of yours brought some memories. There's a thread called something like Folk Clubs London 60s/70s. I'll try to copy your note there.
