Too kewl, Bill! I loved "When I'm Sixty-Four!" And, actually found the "still remembering" section at the bottom quite interesting; sounds as though a wonderful young musician, Chithalen, was lost and definitely had an impact in his short life.

I am glad you've started a musical thread. I am beginnning to feel like an old curmudgeon, too; when I look at most of the thread titles, I groan in despair! Betcha never thought to hear THAT from ME!!!*BG*

Doesn't this count as noise, not music? Where's kendall and Mbo to set us straight on this?

Yes katlaughing, Joe was a great guy and a great musician. He is still missed by many.

Sophocleese, that is so sad about Joe C. While my son was growing up he had the same kind of allergy to peanuts; made a few trips to the emergency room before he finally quit trying to sneak peanut butter sandwiches. Luckily, he outgrew it. It seems esp. poignant as my son is only a year younger than Joe was.

Amergin! You'd better duck and cover, 'cause I ain't THAT old!**BG** And, I've been studying the Way of the Curmudgeon by BillD., so I am a neophyte, at least!

Now, come on, you phoaks! I kind of like the homey sound the accordion gives some of these tunes, be fair, now..give them an impartial listen...pretend you don't know the instrument being used.**BG**

Hey, I really liked that! "I Will" sounds so pretty on accordion! Wish they sold the CD around here...

Aw dammit Bill.........One of my favorite lines is now shot to hell, paraphrased from US Grant, ..................Accordion Players only know two songs; the other one isn't.

Did anyone notice they stuck a couple of originals in with the Beatle's songs? Or was "Wee Wool Cat" on a bootleg I missed?

The Beatles put the Kingston Trio out of business...I've hated them ever since.

it is hard for me to put accordians & Beatles..etc...into perspective

you see, I never intentionally listened to EITHER the Beatles OR the Kingston Trio....I got right into trad type stuff (mostly) of course, you couldn't avoid hearing some of the ersatz folk stuff, like Joan Baez, Terriers, Kingston Trio...etc...but I started on Richard Dyer-Bennet, Jean Redpath, New Lost City Ramblers and a local guy who did Child Ballads and everything that was being published in Sing Out..(though I never saw the magazine till years later)..we were having Hootenannies in living rooms in '62..with some pretty good stuff..Of course, we ended up DOING some pop-folk, but I had no idea where it came from...was getting it 'folk-processed', NOT from the current charts. (I knew ONE fellow who a collection of records....and HE had the Beers Family and blues and some serious country!)........and once the real thing was in my soul, I never needed Buffy St.Marie and Donovan and The New Christy Minstrels.

Hey, the "real thing" didn't end in 1910 or something like that...it's still going on here today. Folk will never begin or end at any identifiable point in human history. I have written folksongs.

Hey Bill D,

I don't think Richard Dyer-Bennet is any more "the real thing" than the Kingston Trio.

The Trio were pop-types doing folk-like arrangements while Dyer-Bennet was an arty/opera-type doing folk-like arrangements. Both were pretty phoney.

One of the worst records I ever heard was Richard Dyer-Bennet singing the blues song "I'm A Poor Boy A Long Way From Home."

ya know, I meant to say something about Dyer-Bennet NOT being pure...but he DID so many genuine folk songs, though in a bit of an 'artsy' way, that it was ok while I sorted it all out. His records are still important, though not exactly authentic...but some of his stuff is wonderful..(and, as you say, some is awful)

Bill D, you're so good to me. (Love the accordions. Now if I could only develop a taste for the Beatles.)

Stangely compelling! Got the first bit of 'A day in the life' but not the rest of it. I wondered how he'd manage the 'orchestral orgasm' on solo accordion. (Never written that word before- the things you do at the Mudcat Café!)
