Subject: RE: Obit: John Herald (Greenbriar Boys)
Before KPFK knocked him off the line-up, John Davis used to play a lot of John Herald. That was where I got to hear the post-GBB work. His song about Rambling Jack is a great number - and I still keep trying to get the break down for White House Blues.
I hope someone puts a Herald re-release tribute cd together - including the Woodstock Mt. review material. He was one of the great ones, along with Steve Gillette (still kicking - watch for him!) and Monte Dunn, who backed a lot of Ian and Sylvia's stuff. Lots of great stuff back then that didn't get too high on the radar.
