MissouriMud The 60's in Greenwich Village & Berkeley (45) RE: The 60's in Greenwich Village & Berkely 13 Oct 06

Ahh - so thats what happens when you press the submit button before you write anything......

Jerry - you are definitely a star!

As to Club 47 and the Boston scene - I only went to the club 2 or 3 times.   My most vivid memories are actually of a guitar shop on the same or a nearby block of Mount Auburn Street, where I got my first banjo in November 1960. I was 13 and visiting my brother at Harvard, and had decided I wanted to be available when the Kingston Trio needed to replace Dave Guard. The club was advertising a benefit concert to bail out one of their regular performers (possibly Jackie Washington) who had been charged with some sort of crime that I dont now recall.   There were posters all over the shop and nearby kiosks. At the time I didnt know who most of the performers were but it was a really cool concert. The club seemed very small for what I was expecting, perhaps because it was so crowded.
