MissouriMud Obit: Hamilton Camp (2 Oct 2005) (42) RE: Obit: Hamilton Camp (2 Oct 2005) 04 Oct 05


I didnt follow Camp in his later career, but the Gibson/Camp Gate of Horn recording had a profound influence on me as a young folk musician. Basically it was one of the primary forces in moving me from being a Kingston Trio banjo playing Dave Guard wannabe to taking up the 6 and 12 string guitar and entering a much broader arena of traditional folk music and singing. I still play Skillet Good and Greasy, Old Blue and several other tunes from the record. However, beyond just the tunes - the harmonies, arrangements, sense of fun and clear love of the music all came through so strongly they gave me a whole new set of goals to shoot for. Sad to think both men are gone now - but they definitely left an impact here.
