Thread Name: Rick Von Schmidt, any Info?
Subject: RE: Rick Von Schmidt, any Info?
I don't believe Rick ever claimed "Baby, let me..." as his own. He did much to bring such music to the forefront as a kingpin of the Cambridge (Mass) folk scene of the late 50's and early 60's. I'm pretty sure Dylan says that he learned the song from Rick,not that Rick wrote it. Anyway, to find out more about him CLICK HERE.
