Having an afternoon alone as S is out sick-visiting I decided to watch the BBC4 Tom Paxton programme I had recorded from late last evening.
Magic! No date given for the recording, but obviously some time ago,judging by the appearance of the man himself and some of the audience. However, repertoire already included Forest Lawns, I give you the Morning, Jennifer's Rabbit, Annie's Going to Sing her Song, Talking Vietnam Pot Smoking Blues.
Why, with all the visits to UK the man has made, can't the BBC give us a little more than one thirty minute programme?

Three-part documentary series on American folk music, tracing its history from the recording boom of the 1920s to the folk revival of the 1960s.

Jan 30th I think

Thought this 'In Concert'[1974] was awful! Where were the protest songs that he built his early reputation on? 'Goodman, Schwerner & Cheney' has to be among the most forceful but totally harrowing songs ever written. I suppose this concert is 35 years old and he's probably got over this attack of the 'cutes' by now.

I had a kipper tie like that - luckily mine is not preserved on celluloid. just me wedding photographs.

I reckon he deserves a more up to date concert. Likewise richie Havens. I thought to myself, he's looking well - holding back the years. then I saw the guitarists superfly type flairs.

1973... I missed Richie doing the musician in Leicester just before Christmas this year. that film is 36 years old.

who would want to judged on what they were doing all those years ago.

the BBC should make more effort to keep up.
