Subject: RE: Happy 46th Birthday, Folk-Legacy

This true story might put a smile upon your face. Your long time friend Don Firth and I sang a 54th year re-union concert in Seattle a few weeks ago. For one of his first solos, he told the story of sitting in the audience of the 1960 (I think) Berkeley Folk Festival, while you told the story behind the Electra recording of "Wild Mountain Thyme." Then, in honor of you, he sang the song as you prefered it to be recorded ... accapella. The acoustics in this very old church were superb, and as Don threw back his head and let the song just soar, I was thinking that you would have been pleased! CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson
