The original Ramblers were Roy Berkeley, John Cohen and Tom Paley.
Mike Seeger replaced Roy Berkeley before they recorded and, when Tom Paley moved to England, he was replaced by Tracey Schwartz.
Speaking of the Limelighters, did you know that Glen Yarborough was the one who sang "Things go better with Coke". He was able to retire on the residuals.
Greg, I don't know why the sherrif wanted to see Woodie or in what state Robert Johnson placed Chicago. Of course, sometimes Leadbelly lived in the town and Travis longed to be a lump of coal.
Gene Shay, the folk DJ tried to stump me by asking me to name the four marys and asking who wrote "Jesse James" (The answer is in the lyrics).
Not to worry about potential entrants reading these before the contest. There don't seem to be many Philadelphians on Mudcat, more's the pity.
My thanks to everyone.
