That was a terrific reference.

Thanks for the pointer. I spent a lot of time going through it, dredging up memories of NY nights.

I was not central to what was going on, I guess I was one of the people who made up the audiences during the folk music glory days in Greenwich Village. It is trip to go back through those old hangouts. The odd thing, to me anyway, is that I have abosulutely no recollection of Bob Dylan. I remember the Clancy's from that time, Mark Spoelstra, Ralph Rinzler, Izzy Young and his store, Mike Seeger but no Bob Dylan. I saw from the pages that he was at the Indian Neck Folk Festival in 1961. I'm pretty sure I was there that year. I was actually on the Board of Indian Neck but I am not positive I was there that year.

Thanks again.
