Thread Name: FRANK PROFFITT CD on Folk-Legacy
Subject: RE: FRANK PROFFITT CD on Folk-Legacy
All I can say about the greatness of this CD I have tried to express above and the fact that Sandy has any left is surprising. Really folks.....THIS IS THE REAL THING!!!

Sandy mentioned to me that incredible as it may seem to me (and him), this CD isn't getting much airplay by the Folk DJ's either. I don't get it. I wonder if many have gone so far down the road of smooth and sanitized folk music with superlative picking and trained voices that they have forgotten what real music from the mountains sounds like and don't want to play it when they hear it.

Frank Proffitt's contribution to our music is great and the fact that Sandy put this collection out on CD showed the true commitment of Folk Legacy to history, to music, to us.

If you haven't been to the Folk Legacy site, then do it now and you'll find some songs from this album.....Click them and have a listen. Then call Sandy and order up this wonderful collection. You might look around a bit and find more Art Thieme and Rick Fielding and Dan Milner's wonderful "Irish in America"......and Gordon Bok, Bill Staines, the great Golden Ring series, Joan Sprung, Barton & Para, and a host of others.
