So I was spamed this morning by, and they are plugging "The Big Red Songbook," by Utah Phillips. I couldn't find out much about it on the Amazon site. I wondered if this was new, and was in the works before his death, or...

                Does anyone know much about it?

The Utah Phillips connection is that he wrote the "Afterword" section of the book.

In the notes section of this quite fascinating book Archie Green and all reflect on the idea of FIELD RECORDINGS. They say the tapes I made of Paul Durst in 1961 are just about the only ones ever made of a Wobbly songster -- except Harry Haywire Mac McClintock's recording an interview and singing his songs for Sam Eskin. I'd been telling folks about these old tapes I made of Paul for close to 50 years now---and it feels real good for some notice to be made of Paul, his songs---but mainly his life.

Archie Green, if you're out there, thanks so much!!
