Just finished reading "Baby Let Me Follow You Down". It's an incredible book full of information on how the folk music scene developed in coffee houses in the 50's and 60's, went from alternative to mainstream, and dispersed around the country.
Thanks Eric and Jim for doing such a good job of chronicling the era. I'm writing the Beaux Arts book about a similar scene in Florida during that time. Eric was there too.
