GUEST,Allan S Logan English's Story? (21) RE: Logan English's Story? 21 Aug 00


I knew Logan many years ago at the Yale Hoots in the 1950's, Great singer. somewhere I have tapes I made of him singing at the Hoots. Logan did have one problem and that was his borrowing peoples versions of a song and claiming it as his own. I remember him saying " I'm using your version of Geordie, I hope you dont mind. " Later Joan Biez sang it on one of her records saying "I learned this from Logan English" Oh well. Yes there was quite a bit of heavy drinking in those days but I did't know that it had gotton out of control with him. A great loss. Somewhere I have a 10" folkways? of him singing. just found it. Bangum and the boar, East VA. Little Cory Bold robingtons courtship etc. etc. rest in peace Logan
