I got a notice from Elderly about a new Jim Kweskin cd and found this pdf file on the web pdf file
Hope that he will be touring. I saw him last with a group in San Diego in mid-'80's, and have been a fan since the first lp.
If Jim Rooney's book on the '60's scene is Boston can be found, I recommend it.
Jim, it will be good to hear you again.
Chris

Hey, Chris, thanks for the link, but there were a few extra characters, try this:

Kweskin

Loves that guy, ever since the old Jug Band days.

I first saw the Jug Band in Chicago in the mid-'60's in some club on Wells (I think) that was an old church - very appropriate for the Kweskin congregation that traveled and performed with children and assorted others.
My favorite jug band song is "Storybook Ball," a Billy Murray song from 1918 or so (once available from Billy in cyberspace in the glory days of Napster).
Sure would be great if Rounder or somebody could do a Nitty-Gritty-Circle-type Jug Band project with Kweskin, Sebastian, et al.   In the meantime, try the Todalo Shakers or the Juggernaught Jug Band!
Any other good jug bands out there?
Chris

Thanks for the heads-up about the Rooney book, Fsharp. If it's "Baby Let Me Follow You Down: The Illustrated Story Of The Cambridge Folk Years" by Jim Rooney and Eric von Schmidt, it's on good old Amazon. I need some clickie practice so keep your fingers crossed and try THIS

I'm a great fan of the Kweskin Jug band (also Gus Cannon, Sunshine Skifle Group, Bluff City Backsliders, Red McKenzie & all those old washboard bands -Washboard Sam, Washboard Serenaders etc - as well as their UK equivalents) and came across this Japanese site which has a lot I've not yet come across.Japanese Site :Jug Band Record list

In the Passim interview Jim says that America was his best record - that's the one I didn't buy!!!
Does anyone else agree with that?
I still listen to Relax Your Mind - how can you beat that??

yes, 'Jim Kweskin's America' is by far his best recording. I have three lps of it. some of it may have been released on a cd called the 'Lyman Family', or 'Mel Lyman Family', or something like that, but I'm not sure yet if that's true.

looking at the discography it seems likely the Mel Lyman 'Birth' cd is the one I'd heard of, and it's not a cd of 'America'.
