Thread Name: Van Ronk's Early Jugband lp
Subject: RE: Van Ronk's Early Jugband lp
I'v got Ragtime Jug stompers and the Red Onion Jazz Band and mono and stereo copies of The Blues Project. On my i-pod so I can listen to them while I am at work(people think I'm crazy 'cause I'm always singing along with it). DVR is one of my most favorite musician's of all time. My friends and I shared a bottle of JackDaniels with him at a performance at the Chessmate in Detroit back in the 60's. Read "The Mayor of MacDougal Street" and a book called "Baby Let Me Follow You Down" by Eric Von Schmidt and Jim Rooney. Books written by people who were there and involved in some of the best music ever recorded.
