And then there was this little guy called Bob Dylon, or some such. Came over to appear in a BBC TV program, stuck around long enough for me to see him at the Troubadour, then went back to the US with the same song as that Simon bloke, and another one about a chap called Franklin. At least he had the decency to modify the words before he copyrighted them.
Then there were the likes of Amory Kane, Chris Rohmann and Colin Scot who sort of took up residence for a while.
Apparently Phil Ochs passed through, but I missed him (so did most - I've never met anyone who claimed to have seen him over here).
There was this nice fellow called Tom Paxton who came, came back and stayed awhile, and still visits from time to time. He's my favourite.
