Subject: Steve Goodman record release
From: BK Lick

Excerpted from "Steve Goodman release continues his legend" by Chrissie Dickinson in the September 24, 2006 Chicago Tribune. Click me!
Chicago folk legend Steve Goodman died of leukemia in 1984 at 36. But thanks to a recently unearthed recording that hit store shelves earlier this month, it feels as if the singer-songwriter is more alive than ever.

"Steve Goodman: Live at the Earl of Old Town" (Red Pajamas Records) features Goodman performing live at the Chicago folk club in 1978. It's a high-quality recording that captures him in peak form...Goodman's spirit crackles off the grooves.
[...]
It was record producer Jim Tullio, a close Goodman friend and colleague, who rediscovered the tapes that would become the Earl of Old Town live release. The tapes were originally stored at the Chicago Recording Company. Two years after Goodman's death, the CRC called [Al Bunetta, Goodman's longtime manager and co-owner of Red Pajamas Records] and asked what he wanted to do with the recordings. Bunetta called Tullio, who retrieved the tapes and took them to his Winnetka home for safekeeping.

In the ensuing years, Bunetta and Tullio became busy with other projects and forgot about the recordings. Six months ago, Tullio came across the box. "I called Al and said, `You'll never believe what I just found.' And Al had completely forgotten about it, which I had too."

They decided it was worth checking out. After the tapes were transferred to a digital format, Tullio was knocked out by what he heard.

"Steve's guitar-playing is just stunning," says Tullio, who went on to mix the record. "This is Goodman in his element at the Earl of Old Town. And '78 was his prime. Steve was at his best then. He was still in remission at the time, he was feeling great. It's just a fantastic record. Al decided to put it out. I think it's very timely."
[...]
"Unbelievable," Bunetta says. "We spent so much time together, he was my best friend. And I didn't remember him being that great, and I mean over-the-top great. I remember always wanting him to do an instrumental record, and he never did. And that's the only regret I have, period."

Hmmm. I wonder what will be on the new album. I have one called Gathering at the Earl of Old Town, a Drive CD reissue of an LP issued in 1976 by Mountain Railroad Records. My copy's not for sale, but you can get used from Amazon for $98.98. Here are the tracks:
  1. Prepare for Invasion - Jim Post
  2. Eight Ball - Steve Goodman
  3. Wild Women Don't Have the Blues - Ginni Clemmens
  4. Jimmy Newman - Fred Holstein
  5. Chicago Bust Rag - Steve Goodman
  6. Jazzman - Ed Holstein
  7. The Man Who Sings - Fred Holstein
  8. For Eddie - Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah
  9. Colorado Exile - Jim Post
  10. Fat Stuff - Ed Holstein
  11. Goin' Home - Fred Holstein
  12. I Met a Young Boy - Ginni Clemmens
  13. City of New Orleans - Steve Goodman



Here are the tracks from the new CD:
1. Intro
2. Lincoln Park Pirates
3. Red, Red Robin
4. Three-Legged Man
5. I'll Fly Away
6. Grand Canyon Song
7. Men Who Love Women Who Love Men
8. What Have You Done For Me Lately?
9. Hand It To You
10. The Family Tree
11. Truck Driving Man
12. The Auctioneer
13. Lost Highway
14. City Of New Orleans
15. Let's Give A Party
16. Rockin' Robin
17. When The Cubs Go Marching In
18. Old Smoothies

I've heard most of these songs, but it will be nice to hear them in a live recording.

Too Cool.

There's also a brand new tribute album of Steve Goodman songs performed by the current generation of singer-songwriter types...

It's called "My Old Man", his daughter Rosanna was 'executive producer' and includes Luther Wright (Canadian best known for his bluegrass interpretation of the entire "Brick in the Wall" Floyd album) singing "City of New Orleans". They were interviewed on CBC radio about it yesterday so it's just coming out.

I'm going looking for that one!

Just a point of information regarding the song 'Jimmy Newman'; didn't Tom Paxton write that? Or is this another song?

Yes, it's a Tom Paxton song. Fred Holstein, who recorded it on that Earl of Old Town album, was a great interpreter of traditional and contemporary songs, but was not a songwriter himself.

Chicago radio station WBEZ yesterday broadcast an interview with Jim Tullio. To listen (or download) visit this link and scroll down to the last entry for November 15th. Look for
the text
"We talk with Jim Tullio, who's just released a lost Steve Goodman concert on CD entitled Steve Goodman: Live at the Earl of Old Town (Red Pajama Records, 2006)."
and also
"Chicago Public Radio's Jason Marck sits down with Steve Goodman's mother, Minnette, to discuss the musician's life and career."

Does anyone know if Kenneth Burns is on this recording? I have marked several song with the two working together such as "A Fool Such As I" and "Take Me Out To The Ballgame. Great stuff, but I have only about six cuts, not enough to have a friend burn a whole CD.

Happen you to mean Jethro Burns? If so, the answer is yes -- seven cuts include Jethro playing mandolin.

Thank you Mr. K, I can't wait to get my copy now!

BTW, I cannot bring myself to call Kenneth Burns "Jethro" nor can I find any reason to call dobro master "Buck" Graves "Uncle Josh". Many Country musicians had to adopt a comedy persona in order to make a living. Now they deserve more respect. My opinion only.

From where I sit, Jethro as a jazz player/technician of the mandolin could not be surpassed. Also, his musicality was right on, listenable, musically satisfying and totally accessible. I made the mistake of saying, as host of my old NPR live radio performance show (in introducing Jethro Burns) that he had been a star of the Grand Old Opry. Before his first number, he took time to say, very politely, that he'd never been on that program. I felt like I wanted to climb inside my guitar.

pdq,
You are correct. One of the worst cases of this was David Akeman, Bill Monroe's first banjo picker, better known as Stringbean. He wore those absolutely dumb pants designed to make him look like a long body, short-legged freak of Appalachian nature hickdom.

A friend just supplied me with a tape of Steve Goodman's first concert in Great Britain---plus some others of Steve. Jethro was there with him. It's a marvelous show.

I knew Jethro Burns a liitle bit. We met on a number of occasions long after his Homer & Jethro years. The first time we met, he introduced himself to me as "Jethro." We had a number of mutual friends and I never heard him refer to himself, or heard any of his friends, as anything but "Jethro."

Only years later, after he'd passed away I think, when David Grisman's Acoustic Disc Records released some recordings under the name 'Kenneth "Jethro" Burns,' did I learn that Jethro was not his real name.
