Subject: RE: Help: where she is now
Well, I'm alive and as well as can be expected as one who is older than Jean Ritchie! We were Lee and Tossi Aaron back then, and our house was poker night visit stop for Tom Paxton and others. Our two albums, then for Prestige International, are still floating around out there. Lots of stories and good memories to share. A few popped up at PhilaFolkSong Society's Gilded Cage Reunion, sparked by ever faithful Mike Miller. IN old hoot style we sang with Dick Weissman, Bill Vanaver and many voices we hadn't heard in too long.
Then there's the more recent adventure of talk and calls and a delicious home made CD the maker called "Tossi's Children" all the versions he could find of "I Know You Rider," including Jerry Garcia's conversion, lyric change to a man's song. ( It's a woman's non- blues, first cut on my 1st album, cut in 1961, released in 62)
Anyone wanting to swap tales would be welcome!
