Thread Name: Glenn Close - Up With People
Subject: RE: Glenn Close
Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I have no albums from Up With People or any of the other groups mentioned. I was only a mere child at the time (okay - pre-teen perhaps) but I do remember seeing them on TV and having the same reaction as I did whenever my Dad would watch Lawrence Welk - time to go read comic books.

Seriously, I would love to find some recordings. From a historical perspective it would be interesting to hear the pieces again and remember how the right tried to join the folk revival.

Your mention of Pat Boone reminds me of my Dad again. I remember once he was on the TV and my Dad was reading a newspaper. My Dad heard the singing and peered over his paper to see Boone on the TV. Dad muttered a little 4 letter word and added "how much milk can one person drink" and then went back to his paper.
