Subject: A ONE TIME ONLY update from Folk-Legacy
From: Sandy Paton
Date: 08 Sep 99 - 10:07 PM

Greetings, all:

In the "Auction" thread a few days ago, I promised that I would post a listing of the CDs that we at Folk-Legacy have issued since Max and his trolls last visited our web page to gather information for the Mudcat Shop. Clearly, Max has been too busy to go back and collect data regarding our newer releases, so here you are:

Some earlier recordings now available as compact discs:

CD-56 - Gordon Bok, Ann Mayo Muir & Ed Trickett: Turning Toward the Morning
 One of our most popular recordings, ever, and still leading the pack.
CD-63 - Harry Tuft: Across the Blue Mountains
 Proprietor of the Denver Folklore Center, a fine singer, assisted here by Ed Trickett and Dick Weissman.
 This one isn't even on the web site yet!

CD-66 - Bill Staines: Just Play One Tune More
 Our first Bill Staines album, has "Sweet Wyoming Home," and many other goodies.
CD-70 - Bill Staines: Whistle of the Jay
 Bill's second Folk-Legacy album, includes the first recordings of "Roseville Fair," "A Place in the Choir," and "River," among others.
CD-84 - Gordon Bok: Jeremy Brown and Jeannie Teal
 Gordon's whimsical tale of Capt. Jeremy Brown trying to sail over to West Quacko to spend Christmas with his niece, but the "Hogans" (Nova Scotia fairies) in his yawl-boat won't let him, until his wise old schooner, Jeannie Teal, offers a few tactical suggestions.
 Also has six dandy songs and tunes.
CD-94 - Gordon Bok: A Rogue's Gallery of Songs for 12-String
 One of my personal favorites; a wide ranging miscellany of songs and tunes demonstrating the varied voices of the 12-string in the hands of a master.
 You'll love "Old Fat Boat," if you've ever owned one!
CD-96 - Bok, Muir and Trickett: All Shall Be Well Again
 A wonderful collection of songs and tunes, including Sydney Carter's encouraging "Julian of Norwich."

And some brand new recordings:

CD-124 - Dan Milner, with Mick Moloney, Louis Killen, et al: Irish Ballads and Songs of the Sea  The Mudcat's own "Liam's brother" in a fine program dedicated to the brave emigrants who fled the famine to seek a new life in America.
CD-126 - John Sherman and Carol Barney: Ceol Anam
 A splendid collection of Celtic finger-style guitar duets, with a guest appearance by Bridget Fitzgerald, who offers one song in Irish to grace the many lovely airs and spirited tunes.

And coming up very soon:

CD-125 - Ballads and Songs of Tradition from the Folk-Legacy Archives
 Selections drawn from my forty years of field collecting, includes songs from Scotland, Canada's Maritime Provinces, Appalachia, the Adirondacks and the Ozarks. All sung by traditional artists such as Jeannie Robertson, Lizzie Higgins, Frank Proffitt, etc.
CD-127 - All Hands Around Irish music performed by a new group from New England including Roger Burridge (fiddle), Dave Paton (concertina and hammered dulcimer), Michael Shorrock (bouzouki and guitar), and Deirdre Murtha (vocals).

Now in the pipeline and expected later this year:

CD-01 - Frank Proffitt, of Reese, North Carolina: Traditional Ballads and Songs of Appalachia  This was our very first recording of the mountain farmer and carpenter from whom Frank Warner learned "Tom Dooley" in 1938, the song that later stimulated the big folk scare. The original version is sung here with fretless banjo accompaniment.
CD-17 - Hobart Smith, of Saltville, Virginia The near-legendary banjo and fiddle virtuoso from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

CD-99 - Ann Mayo Muir's So Goes My Heart Annie's solo recording (with Gordon Bok and Ed Trickett helping out). Almost a Bok, Muir, Trickett production, except that Annie leads all of the songs, including one duet sung with her daughter Christina.

Now I've done as I said I would, and listed the items that escaped Max's attention. But I want to add this: I'm not ready to turn our Mudcat Discussion Forum into a billboard for promoting product. I was urged to post this information, so I've done so, but I will not do it again. If you want to keep up with what Folk-Legacy is offering, you're invited to visit our web page at: BOOKMARK THIS and look around. If you decide to order something using our secure ordering process, be sure to mention that it's a Mudcat order in the "comment" line on the order blank. That way, we'll know to credit the sale to the Mudcat and give Max the commission, even if the item isn't listed in the Mudcat "Shop."

The many friends I've made in this community are too damned important to me to allow our Forum to become a place for "CD hustle." I'll not jeopardize those friendships with another example of blatant commercialism.

That's it, good people. Now I'll bid you all a goodnight.

Sandy (hoping this whole shebang translates properly into HTML!)

Sandy, don't beat yourself up! You are doing all folklovers a service and the machine just had the hiccoughs or something.

Thank you for catching us up. I have been drooling over your website quite often of late, but my first order, on recommendation of 'Spaw & others, is going to have to be the Golden Circle Reunion. Apologies to all others!

Liam: Did you mention Mudcat? I don't recall seeing the order, and I think I would have noticed it, if it had a Mudcat comment line. I'll credit Mudcat, if you forgot.

By the way, I've enjoyed reading your contributions to the Forum. You are a most welcome addition to the community.

Sandy - OOoops! No, I neglected to mention Mudcat. Sorry.

Thanks for the welcome. I used to use the Mudcat database from time-to-time over the last year or so, trying to find an old song or two, but I never paid attention to the forum. Then when that Bill Staines song, Piney River Girl kept running over and over in my head, I knew I had to find a copy of the recording ... I remembered the Mudcat forum, so I posted a request for help finding it ... and in that search I discovered, not only the song I was looking for, but a lively and interesting group of folkies like myself ... with a love of life, humor and music! It has been a lot of fun, visiting this place ... and participating in the discussions. Thanks again for the welcome!

Sandy, is "Rogue's Gallery of Songs for 12-String" strictly instrumentals?
Maybe you don't want to post something like this at Mudcat again, but I've sometimes found your Website is a bit behind and does not list new releases where I can find them easily. Maybe could you have a page like this at your Website, that you can edit yourself and keep up-to-date with the latest information? I didn't see those five "coming soon" albums listed anywhere at your site, and I have to say I've often had problems finding all the new stuff on your site.
Actually, though, maybe I should have a standing order for "one of each." You sure have some good music there, Sandy.

For all you mudcatters looking for my new album "Farewell" from the Celtic Waltzes thread.... Sandy has consented to carry it for me! Now we have credit card purchase available for the aussie folks (alison and Helen) and anyone else. They should be arriving at his door in the next couple of days and I will post on my website (www.vancouver.quik.com/pevenden) and in the 'celtic waltzes ready' thread when Sandy gives me the word.

Thanks again Sandy!!

"Rogue's Gallery" is mostly songs, Joe, with a couple of instrumentals. Everything from "Old Fat Boat" to "Duncan and Brady." I love it.

I don't like to list "upcoming" CDs since there's many a slip between cup and lip. I wait until I have the item in hand and can send a sample to my web guru for scanning and posting. For instance:

Add to the list above:

BOB ZENTZ: Hove-to, and Drifting - Songs of the Sea, River & Bay
 Bob's brand new collection, recorded "live" at the North Caroline Maritime Museum.

GEORGE WARD: All Our Brave Tars - British and American Songs from the Age of Fighting Sail.
 Fine collection of maritime material, well done.

ED TRICKETT: Echo on the Evening Tide
 Ed's new self-produced CD continues his unerring quest for fine songs.

And for all of his Mudcat friends:

RICK FIELDING: This One's the Dreamer
 It's here, folks, playing on my machine right now! You're gonna love it!

Do it the easy way: CALL 1-800-836-0901 and talk with Caroline.

When you order any of these, do it by title (we'll have to add the numbers later, when I can get to the catalog on the computer, and be sure to mention Mudcat when you call!

Sandy (hoping this works better than the last attempt!)

Looks good, Sandy! Say, I've had an idea which Joe might like. Don't know if it would be practical for you or not but I would love it. How about a CD Of The Month Club, where you are authorised to deduct a certain amt. from our credit cards, eash month, on a certain day, to send us each the one of your choice for that month. I trust your judgement and it seems like a fairly painless way for me, at least, to acquire more of a collection. I quit the monthly deducted gift to NPR 2 years ago and I would love to be using that to support you, the Mudcat and the artists. (If you didn't want to choose just one, perhaps we could one out of three options, via email?)

Would this fly?

Jeez! I forgot to thank Joe for clearing up the mess I made of that first listing. A couple more break doodads and it would be almost acceptable! At least it's readable now. More brownie points for our good cyber-samaritan.

I expect "Farewell" to arrive any day now. We'll take advance orders, since we know it exists (we've heard it) and is on its way to us. The only hitch would be with the postal services, Canadian and U.S.)

Hey Sandy, I think if Joe likes "You're Always Welcome at Our House", he'd also really enjoy that song about the bird on Rogue's Gallery. I forget what it's called. Go ahead and buy it Joe, you'll like it.
Blessings,

I dunno, Kat, m'luv. The idea of a "CD of the Month Club" could get pretty "complicated" (as Wally indicated elsewhere selling CDs could become). I'd hate to send someone a CD they really didn't like, and I've observed over the past umpteen months that Mudcat tastes can differ as much as those of folks who buy Hallmark cards. We'd end up having to deal with exchanges, etc. Can of spaghetti! Besides, as some of you may have surmised, I'm not a very efficient business-person. I'm sure I'd get lost in the hassle. As Cisco Houston once said to me: "Hell, I'm just a bare-assed ballad singer."

Nope. Joe doesn't like the CD-of-the-Month idea. I'd miss having the chance to call Caroline Paton and chat when I place my orders. I would guess that most of the male Mudcatters are madly in love with Caroline.
And I've seen several women around here who keep chasing after poor Sandy. What a guy. I don't know how he puts up with it.

Well Joe, I've never met them in person, but I love them both....and I'm sorry if I pushed an issue here that may have made either of them uncomfortable. I don't want the 'Cat turned into a commercial site either, but Folk-Legacy provides an education, not a product. I value their input and friendship far too much to have even inadvertently offended them. But I hope they can see by the several threads of the past couple of days that this community cherishes their presence. I apologize for being a pushy bastard, but it comes from a past life and every now and again it pokes through....Sorry.

Spaw--who hopes that Sandy and Joe will each take an apology in advance for what I said about them on the "Secret of Life is Asking Questions" thread.

Oh, it's pure hell, Joe, but I've learned to live with it.

As for those calls to Caroline: well, Rick calls her almost every day, with Heather adding comments in the background. They even let ME in on the conversations now and again. But I ought to warn you all: I've heard Caroline taking an order for a single CD, and noted that by the end of the conversation the poor guy placing the order has cheerfully taken advantage of our "buy five and save a dollar each!" discount. I couldn't do that! I would have taken his order meekly and thought, by damn! I sold a CD! Let's face it; I'm a wimp. Thank God for Caroline.

Sandy- I make almost all credit card purchases using American Express. I know they are high on the percentage they take, but is there any chance of you going to Amex in future. It would help me to make more purchases from Folk Legacy.

I dont get bent when I see grocery stores advertising, and, as far as I'm concerned, Folk Legacy provides a service which none of us can get along well without. If I had to give up one or the other, it would be groceries.. well, tofu anyway.
