Thread Name: FRANK PROFFITT CD on Folk-Legacy
Subject: RE: FRANK PROFFITT CD on Folk-Legacy
Sandy,
This was always one of my favorite Folk Legacy albums. I just got this as a custom cassette from you recently 'cause my old LP of it is too worn to play. But it sure ought to be picked up by a ton of new folkies who never got to hear Frank in person back in the '60s or never ever knew what a victrola turntable was for. Congratulations for getting this out on CD, sir.

By the way, I picked up the Warner family collected songs CD at the Cleveland Folk Alliance gathering 2 years ago and was pretty much amazed to hear Frank Proffitt doing "Tom Dooley" on a guitar--not a banjo. I was really shocked !? I don't ever think I realized that he played guitar.

Love to you and Caroline & David and Rob,

Art Thieme
