Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk book
Hi, Tracy: Dylan burst on the scene so dramatically that it was no surprise that he hit it big. It seemed like one day word started getting around and the next day he was scheduled to be on the Ed Sullivan Show. Joan Baez was much more of a Boston scene discovery. I never heard her, or even saw that she was singing anywhere in the Village, or anywhere in New York City in the years I was there.. from 1960-64. Judy Collins already seemed well known by the time I first heard her, although her evolution into an art and pop singer was somewhat of a surprise.
