Subject: RE: Where's Bob Bolton?
Bob has retired & no longer has an email address (shakes head in amazement that a person can exist without email & internet!)

He is busy with the odd bit of music & lots of sorting out. I recently asked Pat how many bedrooms they allegedly have - 3 she said, but she just wanted one guest room.

So each week be brings amazing stuff into the Bush Music Club - records dating back to the earliest days, multiple copies of previous issues of our magazines - Singabout 1954-1966, Mulga Wire 1977 to date, other club's magazines, books, membership records from the 60s-70s which we thought they were all destroyed years ago ...

BMC's Library & Archives are interspersed with Bob & Pat's large library & they are gradually being separated.

I made 3 complete sets from the boxes of Singabouts - 2 for BMC & one for a folklorist/singer & we still have many spares. They are an amazing source of scholarship of the early days of the Australian folk revival.

Singabout Vol. 1, 1956

Singabout Vol. 2, 1957/58

Singabout Vol. 3, 19658/59

Singabout Viol. 4, 1960

articles on Vols. 5 & 7 are in draft & will be posted in the next few days

I look forward to your PM, Haruo

I also look forward to Bob's next load
