Sandy Paton First Annual Mudcat Living Treasure Award (96* d) RE: First Annual Mudcat Living Treasure Award 01 Jul 07

Art mentioned that early Elektra recording of mine. I was more nervous than Jerry at his first Folk-Legacy festival. Tight as a tick (however tight that might be), sitting in a fancy recording studio with Freddy Hellerman preparing to add his fancy guitar licks to my minimal efforts. Lord! How his presence intimidated me! My hands were shaking so fiercely that my fingers could hardly find the few strings I knew how to pluck. After all, he was a WEAVER!

But what I wanted to remind you of, Art, is that the photographer who did the three-image cover shot for that album was none other than George Pickow, Jean Ritchie's extremely talented husband. His studio was called "Three Lions" (as I remember) and they did quite a few record jacket photos. That must have been back in 1959 (when you were only 18, Art!)

I was a bit older than that. The note on the back of the album makes that painfully clear.
