There was The Cafe Wha, The Cafe Bizarre, the Fat Black Pussycat, the Wha? and the best of the places, as far as I was concerened, The Gaslight Cafe. I have a few shots of McDougal Street, the Gaslight Folk Lore Center, and the Kettle of Fish that I came across recently. I'd e-mail them to someone to post here on Mudcat, if people would tell me who to send them to.
Tom Paxton's first record was on the Gaslight label, and Dave Van Ronk ran a Monday night Hootenanny (as much as possible, from the Kettle of Fish.) Certainly, there are books with the names of all the coffee houses somewhere..
