Subject: RE: Van Ronk's Early Jugband lp
I meant the record rather than the group. It was on Elektra and I wore out three copies - then the fourth one got borrowed by a man who went to India.

there was this this little booklet with it that was pretentious as all hell. Comparing Danny Kalb's Downtown Blues to Genet, Beckett and Sartre - (all at once!).

pretentious but fun!

all the best

to all my fellow pseudo intellectuals who went on to read Genet, Beckett and JPS - hoping for something as much fun as Danny Kalb
