Subject: RE: BS: Brushes with Greatness
I worked on the concert committee at Auburn Community College in the 70's and we did well for a small college. I got the job of intros and I mer a load of folks some I liked and some not so well.

Tom Rush was proffessional and friendly

Tom Paxton was gracious and accommodating to a fault.

Buffy Ste. Marie was lovely and generous with praise for rhe school.

John Hammond and Steve Goodman, who were on the same bill, were musical virtuosos and social wastes.

Livinston Taylor was very friendly and a lttle laid back.

Gordon Bok was fine ijn performance and as a house guest even did the dishes. he shared is rum as well.

Ed Tricket seemed amazed that all the fuss was over him.

Robin and Linda Williams will never forgive me for call them the Williamsons, ah well.

Dave Bromberg, Aztec Two Step, Seals and Crofts, even Bruce Springfield, The Winters Brothers. we had them all. Many great shows, very few louts.
