Subject: RE: Beatnik, Prevert, don't talk that way to me!
hildebrand here. hello Art. dont know if i was ever in the earl of old town. i didnt get around to the venues much -- hung around Poor Richard's, where i used to see fred holstein, and i performed twice at I't's Here, run by the awful Eddie Gunjer. in the spring of 66 i went back to southern indiana.
phil, thank you for the compliment. i think steve did a terrific job on the song, and over time did some highly entertaining variants.
