Subject: Songs ABOUT Ramblin' Jack Elliott ???
From: Stefan Wirz
Date: 24 May 00 - 02:19 PM

Just discovered that there's a song called 'Jack Elliot' on the self titled John Herald LP (Paramount PAS 6043 ) and added it to the Jack Elliott discography I started a few days ago: http://www.wirz.de/music/elliodsc.htm

Now I'm wondering if there are ANY other artists having dedicated any of their songs to RJE - any hints are appretiated !!!
Stefan

Guy Clark does one. I'll come back to the thread if I can put my hands on the song.

The Guy Clark one is called 'Ramblin' Jack and Mahan'. The 'Mahan' refers to Larry Mahan. It was co-written with Richard Leigh and appears on Clark's 'Boats to Build' album.

Great job, Stefan. A double CD with all the tracks on what you have listed as DLP 1975 was issued in 1996 by Gold Sound label: Jack Elliot & Derrol Adams [note wrong spellings] 'Selection of America' Gold Sound DCD-768-1/DCD-768-2. More tracks than on the 1998 A World of Music CD that you list. Unfortunately, there is no information at all. I got my set through Bugsy. Send him a personal message and he may be able to give you some information about them.

Stefan, you will find a complete Topic discography here:

Topic

It may assist you with dates for 78s. It gives 1955 for 'Talking Miner'/'Pretty BF' and 1957 with (?) for 'Streets of Laredo'/'Boll W' and also for 'Old Blue'/'Rambling Blues'. I couldn't see 'So Long' there.

--Stewie.

John Herald's "Jack Elliott" song is also on the "Bread and Roses Festival" album on Fantasy.

In addition to "Ramblin' Jack and Mahan," that's already been mentioned, Guy Clark's "Cold Dog Soup" also mentions Jack. It's the title song of Guy's latest Sugar Hill album.

Christine Lavin has a song called "Ramblin' Waltz" on her "Future Fossils" album on Philo. It doesn't specifically name Jack, but it's obviously about him.

Christine does mention him in the liner notes or in the pre song patter when she sings the song.

There's a song by Kris Kristofferson(I think) with the lines;

"he's a poet and a preacher and a problem when he's stoned..." I think it's about Jack.

That's "The Pilgrim, Chapter 33", the song that hooked me on Kris way back when. In the intro on the big old black CD, Kris mentions a whole handful of people whom he had in mind, ending with "Rambling Jack Elliot had a lot to do with it".
