In my book on Rounder Records I quoted these lines from "Rising Sun Blues," as sung by Clarence Ashley on a Folkways Recording:
And we'll drink to the life of a rounder poor boy,
Who goes from town to town
All in this world does a rounder want
Is a suitcase and a trunk
The only time he's satisfied is when he's on a drunk
A few years after Ashley made this recording, he appeared at Club 47 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Future Rounder founders Ken Irwin and Bill Nowlin were so excited by this appearance that they made up a rubber stamp that read simply "Clarence Ashley is Coming." They stamped the phrase all around the Tufts University campus and vicinity. Nowlin later described it as a "guerilla art project."
