Thanks for the reminder, Paul. I bought my copy of The Folk Process through amazon.mudcat.org. For some reason, CDBaby didn't have your album available for MP3 download.
For good measure, I bought After the Fire, too. There are some very interesting (and singable) songs on both albums. I learned "I Had an Old Coat" from the Sally Rogers recording, and I've been singing it for years. I figured it was time to hear Paul sing it himself.

P.S. For those of you who are a littly rusty on your folkie hagiography, Paul was co-author (with Mudcatter Dan Milner) of the well-loved 1983 Oak Publications book, Songs of England, Ireland, and Scotland: A Bonny Bunch of Roses. The book is still in print.
See this thread (click) for other songs by Paul Kaplan.
