Subject: RE: Help: Ian and Slyvia collaborations
For my money, what there is of it, the best stuff they ever did was on the first 3 or so albums where John Herald did guitar leads. Guy I used to room with Cambridge when I was in law school in the mid-60s had the lead to "Four Rode By" nailed pretty well. I've only seen him a handful of times since then, but we got together in Saratoga, WY at their arts festival in summer '99. We did that song spontaneously - in front of a live audience, with no practice in decades - with me doing Ian and Mizchuck doing Sylvia and it came out real good. The good stuff stays with you.

Peter.
