Thread Name: Little known 1970's Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1970's Folk Singers
Don spent most of the seventies in Sweden and up and down the busking trail throughout Europe. Without wanting to get into another of those "hat is folk?" debates, I would say that he became very much the epitome of the true folk singer at that time. I know of his follow ups to "Rosie" ("Blue Eyes" and "Breakfast on Pluto"). However, if you talk to Don about that, he only regards it as a very small part of his life. As far as he (and I as it happens) see it, his really important work was done as a street entertainer. He was truly a master of that, although relatively few people are aware of how very good he was.
