Subject: Release Dates of Folk LPs 1960's 1970's
From: GUEST,Lin
Date: 08 Jan 16 - 09:04 PM

I have a number of folk LPs from the 1960's & 1970's and it is kind of my pet peeve that a lot of obscure records did not have the release date on the LP itself or on the record jacket. I have done research by looking on Google but usually can only find mention of the album but hard to find information of release dates. Sometimes names of the singers are mentioned too. (but not LP release date)
I will list some of the records that I am looking for release dates and I am just approximating that it is from the 1960's or 1970's.

1. THE ALL NIGHT SINGERS (SELF-TITLED) 196?
(SINGERS ARE A TRIO - JEAN HAMMONS, MARY KOTH, RUSTY EVANS

2. THE BEGGARMAN - SELF TITLED (CURRACH RECORDS) - 197?
(Two singers listed are Patsy Whelan & Mixie Clark)
*NOTE; THERE ARE QUITE A FEW ALBUMS UNDER THE NAME
"THE BEGGERMAN" I THINK THIS LP WAS RELEASED IN MASSACHUSSETTS.

3. TERRY CRAIG - "MY BIRCH BARK TREE"
TIP TOP RECORDS - 197?   RELEASED IN CANADA

4. ANITA CARTER - "SINGS FOLK SONGS OLD & NEW" MERCURY RECORDS - 196?

5. JUDY HILL - THE FOLK SOUNDS OF ATLANTA PRESENTS THE VERSATILE VOICE OF JUDY HILL - CRITERIA RECORDS - 196?

6. IGUANA COFFEEHOUSE - UNICORN RECORDS - 196?
(VARIOUS UNKNOWN ARTISTS ) WASHINGTON, D.C.   

7. THE KINSFISHERS "NOVA SCOTIA IS OUR HOME"
(ARCSOUNDS - 196?)

8. KATHY KEENAN "WE NEED MORE LOVE" JEREE RECORDS - 196?

9. NIGHT AT HOOTENANNY COFFEEHOUSE (MIAMI, FLORIDA)
YALE RECORDS - 196? (VARIOUS UNKNOWN SINGERS)

10. WALT ROONEY - "BALLADS" - LAUDIO RECORDS - 197? OR COULD BE
EARLY 198?

11. THE SIMMONS FAMILY "WANDERING THROUGH THE RACKENSACK"
TRADITIONAL RECORDS - 197?

12. THE WESTBURY TRIO - (LOOKS LIKE A SELF PRODUCED LP) 196?
Singers are: MARTHA BRAY, CORRY ROYER & STEPHEN ASKINS - GUITAR

If anyone knows for sure the release date of any of the listed records please post a reply. I would really appreciate it.

I have indicated the approximate decade for the LP's.

Guest,Lin--
Here ya go on the Anita Carter disc. I note that it has "Love's Ring of Fire." This is the first recording of the song that later became a huge Johnny Cash hit. It a more ethereal interpretation than the Cash, and one I like better in some respects.

BTW, if you google some combination of artist, album title, label and album #, you can often (sometimes?) find the info. Good luck.

Subject: The All Night Singers
From: cnd
Date: 09 Jan 16 - 07:51 PM

Regarding The All Night Singers:

They were based out of Mahnattan. That album was released in 1964 on Reprise Reprise RS-6117 (source).

The album appeared in the May 5th, 1964 edition of "Billboard. Here is a picture of the cover: Front. The back might have some information about the band, though you probably won't be able to read it: Back

The songs are as follows: A1 Prettiest Train; A2 My Love And I; A3 Walk In The Sun; A4 Abilene; A5 Don't Think Twice, It's Alright; A6 Chickens Are A-Crowin'; B1 Worried Man; B2 Darlin'; B3 Remember The Alamo; B4 Billy Won't Play The Banjo Anymore; B5 Things Will Be Comin' My Way; B6 San Francisco Bay Blues (source)

There's also an article about them in the Lebanon Daily News from 1964, but you need a membership, and those cost money. I think the article was also available on Ancestry.com (which also costs money).

That was the only album they released, but they did release some religious tracks as backing vocalists with Wally Fowler. They released 5 45's with him: "Down In the Valley of Prayer*" [Decca - 9-29466], "In the Middle of the Night*" [Decca ‎– 9-29659], "You Can't Run Away from God" [Decca - 9-29964], "The Fourth 'R' (Religion)" [Decca - 9-30033], and "The Air, The Sunshine, The Rain" [Decca - 9-30226]. (*Recorded as "The All-Nite Singers," rather than "All-Night")

Regarding the individual members of the band:

Mary Jean Hammons passed away on February 17th, 2015 at age 81. She was born on April 1st, 1933, in Athens, Georgia. In the early '50s, she and her sister Margaret Lindsay and niece, Betty Taylor, were featured on Birmingham and Decatur TV shows, occasionally joined by her brother, Thomas Lee Hammons. After moving to New York in 1957 and having a fairly successful career in book design, art direction, and photography, she moved to acting and singing, and started a private school for actors and singers, training several starts on "All my Children" and others who went on to Broadway and other movies. She reportedly made recordings with Columbia and Cameo-Parkway, in addition to her recording with Reprise, but I could not find evidence of the former two. (source)

Mary Koth (now Mary Koth Lutton) is the only remaining member of the group. She joined The All Night Singers in the early '60s, and says they toured in East Coast Pubs. She then began teaching music, and in a career that spanned 40 years, taught vocal music in public schools, retiring in 2000. In 2005 she met Patrick Karwan, who helped her fulfill her dream of making a solo album, and released "That Was Then, This Is Now" in 2006 [Oasis Productions Limited / OasisCD]. In 2007, she released "Green Mountain Dreamin'," followed by her 2009 release, "To Vermont With Love," then Soundscapes of the Jersey Pineland, and a couple of others. (source)

Rusty Evans has a bit more online about him. Born as Marcus Uzilevsky in Brooklyn in 1937, he moved to Greenwich Village just before the "folk explosion" began there, having had an interest in folk music throughout high school, though never learning guitar until after graduating. Learning various songs from pickers in the Washington Square Park from 1957 to 1967, he took on the name Rusty Evans because "I wanted to have a country singer image." In 1957, he released a rockabilly single called "When I'm Along With You" [Brunswick 45-102959], and in 1958 he released "Uh Huh Uh Huh Uh Huh (Hush Little Baby)" [Brunswick 45-105710]. In 1960, he released "The Night I Crashed Your Party" [Hip H 261], and in 1962 he released "Jack Hammer" [Ribbon 45-6909], that same year joining a folk group called "The Hitchikers." He also became steadily more involved in folk and country circles starting that year, releasing "Showdown! Ballads of the Gunslingers" [Mount Vernon Music MVS 129] in 1962, "Songs of Our Land [Mount Vernon MVS 111] and "That's How Far" [IPG Records IPG 1010] in 1963, and "Let-'Er-Roll! Ballads Of The Railroads" [Mount Vernon Music MVS 142] in 1964, the same year he joined The All Night Singers. Around 1964 (between 1963 and 1967) he released some country songs with several other singers on "In The Summer Of His Years" [Vernon Records V 523]. He discovered the psychedelic scene during a 1965 trip to Los Angeles, and recorded "1983" [Musicor MU-1148] with the Musicor label, though he released it as "Ry Cooper." The same year "1983" was released (1966, confusingly enough), he joined the New Christy Minstrels after a 3-year stint with The All Night Singers, and in 1967 he moved to California and began producing for rock groups, including "It's A Beautiful Day." Starting in 1966 he and David Broomberg and Mark Barkan began recording music as "The Deep," releasing their first album (Psychedelic Moods [Cameo Parkway SP-7051] that same year. In 1969, Evans began recording under the name "Marcus," and released the psychedelic-folk LP album under the same name [Kinetic Z 30297]. He then almost disappeared from the public eye for almost a decade to return in 1979 to his folk roots with the a series of releases of Folkways records, kicked off with "Life's Railway to Heaven" [Folkways FW32440 / FTS 32440], followed up shortly later in with "A Pilgrim Son--Marcus," [Folkway Records FTS 3244] a collection of religious songs. In 1988, his "Folk Symphony For Sara" was played by the Arlington Symphony Orchestra. In 1997, he adopted another name and began releasing ambient sound records, releasing "Slice of Light" [OSI Music OSI-0701], and then "Gypsy Dreams" [OSI Music *number unknown*]. In 2000, Evans (slash Marcus/Uzca/The Deep) went full-circle and joined his son Danny's rockabilly group Ring Of Fire, and released "Rusty Evans and Ring of Fire" [OSI Music *number unknown* ] in 2000, followed by "I'm Comin' Home" [OSI Music *number unknown*] in 2002. They then released "Burning Man" [Blue Skunk Music *number unknown*] in 2005, and "A Tribute to Johnny Cash" in 2006. Certainly a well-rounded musician, he also had a fairly successful career in painting. He passed away in 2015. (source 1, source 2)

Thank you so much for taking your time to do some research for the dates of these albums.
I think it is important information to include on any album released (be it on the record itself or somewhere on the liner notes of record jacket) but obviously a lot of record companies in those days or even self-produced did not feel it was important enough to mention.

"The Beggarmen
1976 - Currach CUR ES77614 LP
The Beggarmen"

http://www.theballadeers.com/noa/mnf_kennedyseamus.htm#76


As to the album details, they are at that link. From it I quote as follows.

"Seamus Kennedy (Belfast)
Tom O'Carroll (Dublin)

Credits

The Beggarmen would like to take this opportunity to thank the following friends and fellow-performers for their unstinting assistance and invaluable contributions and suggestions.
Patsy Whelan and Mixie Clark of Harvest Home, for their Fiddle, Guitar, Accordion & Drums."

So, I think this is the album you mean and the date for its release was 1976.

Seamus, if you see this perhaps you would be so kind as to add a few words. (Trust you're well and behaving.)

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Seamus, for the use of the exact, correct term, 'eponymous'. Most often eponymous albums are referred to by djs or reviewers as 'self-titled, albums' which they are not. They do not title themselves...except maybe in a zen sort of way. Some person gives the album its name. There, that's my pedantry for today.

2. IGUANA COFFEEHOUSE - UNICORN RECORDS

"The Iguana Coffeehouse" was run out of the basement of Luther Place Memorial Church of 1226 Vermont Avenue, NW Washington DC 20005. I assume that's the right thing (given the "considerable" frequency of the name "Iguana Coffeehouse" and they're both in Washington DC). It started as an interfaith mission to reach the "unchurched." Here is their page. You may be able to contact the church for more information about the record--they may even still have some of the singers in attendance! http://lutherplace.org/about-us/our-history

I actually also found your record online: http://www.rootsvinylguide.com/ebay_items/iguana-60-s-private-folk-coffee-house-various-artists-unicorn-records

Most of the website is fairly useless, but it lists the following artists in association with the record: Steve Geyer, The Immaculate Contraption, Mike Harris, Jerry Diggin, Acquiesce, Geff & Thei, and Kay Carpentre. Also, the catalog number is Unicorn Records UN 12179. It looks like it has some more info on the back of the sleeve--could the date be on there?

Another page I found had an artist named Bob Brown who is now having a resurgence in popularity. Source: http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/artsdesk/music/2013/03/06/vinyl-destination-bob-brown-left-the-folk-scene-decades-ago-b

You may also be able to contact the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, who has been an active folk group in the area since 1964. http://fsgw.org/history.htm

So unfortunately, no date, but plenty of leads!

3. KATHY KEENAN - "WE NEED MORE LOVE" - JEREE RECORDS

This site says it's from 1967 or later. http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/60s-folk-private-press-kathy-keenen-99942905 They also say "It is one woman (solo) on folk guitar singing folk songs. I believe she is from Aliquippa, Pennsylvania. It seems she played the Shadyside area in Pittsburgh and around Western PA. "

Here's also a page about Jeree Records: https://sites.google.com/site/pittsburghmusichistory/pittsburgh-music-story/managers-and-promoters/jeree-recording

4. THE SIMMONS FAMILY - "WANDERING THROUGH THE RACKENSACK"

It's definitely old-timey like you said. They're from Arkansas.

This page [https://247actionauction.com/iteminfo.php?cat=CO&subcat=V3&id=20768&display=all] says it's from 1970. It has a version released on "Dancing Doll Records" Catalogue V-3053. It was also put out by Rodney Peppenhorst Productions catalogue USR 3053 [http://www.45worlds.com/vinyl/album/usr3053], however, the back picture from an eBay page shows "Copyright 1971" right under song B1 "Daddy Was A Railroad Man." So that shows the probable date is 1971. https://web.archive.org/web/20160112033253/http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Simmons-Family-Wandering-through-the-rackensack-LP-vinyl-

5. WALT ROONEY - "BALLADS" - "LAUDIO RECORDS - 197?

From the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida area, estimated mid-70s. Source: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/walt-rooney-ballads-70s-private-fl-22927665

But, some good news is there is a Walt Rooney who performs guitar music and lives in West Palm Beach, Florida, who has a website available online. I have sent him an email and will keep you posted.   If you do feel the desire, he has his phone listed on his website, and you could try giving him a call. http://waltrooney.com/

Guest# (or Bruce) - that's why I went to CDs; the records weren't straight. I owe you some poutine.
John On The Sunset Coast - No one appreciates a nice burst of pedantry as much as I.
