Thread Name: Folk Singers Who Are Still Alive
Subject: RE: Folk Singers Who Are Still Alive
Not to belabor the point, but: WILL HOLT. In case you don't knonw, I've started a campaign to save, resurrect, and preserve his music for the future. holt was a folk/cabaret singer and songwriter("Lemon Tree," "Raspberries, Strawberries," and "Broadway is a Tame Street (Compared to Our Main Street)," and a number of others. He was at his best, however, performing the Kurt Weill / Bertolt Brecht canon. If you have a Will Holt record and want to share it with the world and the future world, get in touch with me (rwolfson@datastep.com), and I'll give you the instructions for FedExing me the album (FedEx charges both ways to be charged to my account) and within the same week, you'll receive back both your original album as well as the current CDs for the collection. You will, of course, receive the complete set of CDs once I've collected as many albums as I can find. All contributors will be listed in the liner notes (credit where credit is due, after all). So please search your collections and see if you find the odd Will Holt album lying around.
