Subject: Bud & Travis Santa Monica concert
From: wishwillow
Date: 03 Mar 05 - 11:30 AM

This month marks the 45th anniversary of the great Bud & Travis concert at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

I wonder if any of you were there or have any recollection from friends who were.

For those of us who only had the record, it certainly felt like we were in fifth row center, and playing the LPs has been something which has never lost its flavor over four decades.

The music was special and even the humor (save the line about poisoning cranberries) hasn't become dated. I shared the album with a couple guys in their twenties last week, and they thought the banter was terrific.

Anybody played the CD of the show?

Best to all / Lee

I never met Bud, but I used to go down to the Ramada Inn Lounge in Tucson, Arizona once or twice a week to hear Travis Edmundson play live in the early '70's. I've got a couple of their albums and can't say enough good things about their playing, harmonizing and between song comments. These guys set the bar high and most of the folk acts of the '60's tried hard to emulate them. I still play their music and love it.

I never had the opportunity to see or hear Bud and Travis. However, Travis Edmundson wrote one of my favorite songs. "I'm a Drifter" as done by Vince Martin on the Martin and Neil album "Tear Down the Walls". Great song.

The Homecoming concerts at Occidental College in the early 60's were:
'61 - some new group of youngsters - Peter, Paul and Mary.
'62 - Bud and Travis - they basically re-did the Concert - one or two new jokes would have been good, but music was great. A folk show in LA also played the records of the Mexican duo that B&T used for their arrangements.
(or was it the other way round? I forget.)
'63 - Tito Puente - went to the Ash Grove instead.
Also, Dick Dale's Friday shows at the Pasadena Civic were good too, but the Ash Grove became the plave to be for me.
Come to the Friday night jams at the Folk Era offices - good group.

I bought the CD of the concert, and was greatly disappointed to find that it was only in mono. For a duo act! Hard to understand. Anybody know why this was done? The original was released in stereo.

Nancy Newton:

I found that a little strange too about the concert being released in mono on CD. My LP isn't stereo, and I was looking forward to finding out what the guys were each saying in the intro to Sloop John B, which I could never quite understand.

Checked through forum files, and see that the CD was released in neither mono nor stereo, but 'concert' sound. Does anyone know what that is?

I was born on March 24, 1960, and my father gave this record to my mother on my first birthday. She made a tape of it, and preserved the album in its pristine condition. We also got Volume 2.

I grew up on the Santa Monica concert recording, and love it as much today as ever. B&T were tops.

Over the decades my favorites have changed radically. Loving the loud songs when I was a kid, the ultra romantic ones when I got into my teens, and now, the more complex ones like All My Sorrows, The Clock and Every Night When the Sun Goes In.

I have never heard Bud and Travis [I'm from UK] but their name arose on the John Stewart list [bloodlines] that I am on when Travis came to a Kingston Trio Fantasy Camp a couple of years ago in Scottsdale. As I recall he and his wife went to a couple of the sessions and one of the Bloodliner dinners at which he gave an impromptu performance which was excellent given his age. He is a firm favourite of many of my US friends on bloodlines and one or two of them still see him around in Arizona.

I sent an e-mail to the owner of Folk Era and asked if he wanted to answer the question above.

My favorite records are the Ian and Sylvia releases where the stereo separation for each voice was reallly clear. I sure wish other recordings, especially the great Nanci G duet records, had the two parts clearer.

On a good day, I can sing either Sylvia's or Ian's parts on a lot of their greats - of course, not at the same time -- or as good!!

Is March 24, 1960 really 40 years ago today? I can't believe it, especially when I listen to the Bud & Travis album of the concert!

Today marks the 45th anniversary of one of the greatest events of my life !! On March 24, 1960 , I and my betrothed, who bought me the tickets for a birthday present, sat in row 11, seats 7 and 8 in the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and reveled in the greatest folk music concert ever presented. I have seen Bud and Travis perform three times since then, the last being in 1966 at a small folk club in Buena Park, California , just after they had gotten back together after a rift - they were as good then as they were that very first time and debuted a new song that night - "Anna". They broke up for good shortly after that and each went his separate way. I later met and talked to Bud when he was teaching flamenco guitar techniques at McCabes in Santa Monica (one of the shrines of folk mucic history in the 60's). These two will never be surpassed for pure talent, showmanship and downright stage magnetism. Long live Travis and rest well, Bud from a devoted fan !!
