Bert, I went back looking and it, seems Barbara passed on some parodies to Faith's "Folk Process". It's a nice mention of several mudfolks who had various parody verses. Looks like fine stuff.
Mike, I'll certainly watch for the fall issue, not only to see a mudman inaction, but to see how you treat Tom Russell. I have to presume your'e reviewing "The Man From God Knows Where..."I saw Tom in Portland OR about six weeks ago and he just mesermized me with his great song stories. This new project was much different than I expected since I had brain washed myself with"The Rose of the San Juaquin" As for as his new project goes, all I can say is, "I'm hooked".

Hey, Joe! How's Chico? I graduated from Chico High back in 19 ought 50, as they used to say in Pogo. Went three semesters to Chico State before Pioneer Week did me in (two springs and a fall). That was decades before Playboy named Chico State best social campus in the country (and before Pioneer Week was canceled because too many others, like me, failed to recover from the festivities in time for finals. I got a second eMail the other night saying that of course you had sent me the mudcat messages, you had just thought I was talking about eMail messages. A very weird situation. --seed

Mike,

Ya know, that song by Tom Russell about the American in Morocco who goes with the the Blue Men into the desert where they cut out his tongue & parade him around from place to place attached to a tether so he can dance for people and make cash etc. for them---well, that has to be one of the most amazing songs I've ever heard. Fantastic!! (And I say that meaning that it operates on a mind-boggling fantasy level---pure film noir.) "Blue Wing" and "When Haley's Comet Hit The Ground" (about the last days of Bill Haley) are amazing too. He is the writer that pulls me into the song better than any other writin' today. His creations are actually literary song-tales and,like a real fine novels, they have a way of taking you away. Say hello to Tom for me; we did a radio show together at Western Illinois U. several years ago before I knew what a grand writer he was---at least until he did his "Gallo De Cielo" (the one about a fighting cock). So many incandescent songs flow from him.

Tom wrote an article in the issue of Sing Out that had a feature on yours truly by Scott Alarik. As it turns out, that issue (from what I've heard) was the best selling issue ever for them. I'd be proud, but it wasn't 'cause I was in it. It was because NANCI GRIFFITH was on the cover---and the Griffith story was the article Tom wrote.

Nancy and I had the pleasure of spending two days with Tom Russell and his guitarist Andrew Hardin last month June 23rd and 24th. He did a concert for us at the local church and the audience was so taken in by Tom and his story songs. Art you're so right. He weaves a story that takes you in and holds you spell bound till the end. I had the pleasure, and boy was I ever nervous, to sing Blue Wing with him and Andrew as the last encore of the evening. I'll never forget that. And also Art, thanks for the help with the "Cherokee Queen", I had Utah Phillips sing it to me over the phone. And Mike, I'm looking forward to your story on Tom. I believe "A Man From God Knows Where is one the of the greatest concept albums, I've heard......... I look forward to my Sing out ever quarter, and recommend it to everyone who loves music........

Art,

That song you're referring to is called "Blood Oranges." It is a pretty amazing/scary song.

I agree totally with your comments about Tom. In my opinion he's one of the all-time greats.

I also write CD reviews for the Montreal Gazette. They have a policy there (which I voted against) of rating all the reviews on a scale of X/10. So far, Tom's "The Man From God Knows Where" is the only album I've ever rated at 10/10.

Now you have my curiosity up. I went looking for an audio sample of Blood Oranges and found Tom's website. This will take you to a really neat background thingy on The Man From God Knows Where

I can really relate to his ancestral stuff. I've been looking, on the internet, for over a year to try to find oout who my gggrandparents were in Nova Scotia. This week, after two days on a new service, I found them and beyond! Back to 1745.

As to Blood Oranges..I shall now go check to DT, as I should have done before this, but then I wouldn't have found Tom's page, etc.

I didn't know he co-wrote Navajo Rug! It's one of my all time favourites! I don't have enough time or memory for all the stuff I learn from you guys!

I saw Ian Tyson last in concert last year and he said Tom wrote the song and he(Ian) wrote the Chorus. When Tom sang it, he verified the colaboration and said Ian added the right feel to the song with his Aye yie yies. No doubt a fine song. Whiskey toast is rye bread toast. I think I found that piece of info on the Mudcat...(?)

Good idea, several years ago I would be stalking you for them, but I'm in the downsizing mode and getting rid of "stuff". When the Auction format finally gets off the ground I think we'll see a lot of neat things happen. You can throw it out there on it's own thread and see what happens. I recently went to Harmony Central site and put up my entire collection of Pickin' and Frets magazines for sale.If anyone on this site is interested, I'll cut you a much better deal and forward a percentage to the Big Cat. Bill D.... I think those are some real treasures you have there and offering them for Mudcat Auction is commendable.

It seemed to me it was time to revive this thread. As I read various postings here on Mudcat I get the impression that just about every mudcatter would enjoy reading Sing Out! and therefore ought to subscribe. You might want to check out our website at www.Singout.org to accomplish that. You won't be sorry.

People who haven't seen Sing Out! in a while might not know that we now publish a CD with each issue which contains a full performance of every song that we've printed the melody and lyrics for in the issue. These CDs are delightful to listen to even if you don't want to learn the song. The four CDS alone are worth the price of the annual subscription.

I started reading Sing Out! nearly 40 years ago when I was learning my first D chord and I've kept every issue I ever acquired. Most of my repertoire has appeared in its pages at some time or other and it has drawn my attention to most of the worthwhile "folk music" I have ever heard. It has remained important to me, and enjoyable to read from rank beginner to grizzled "expert" status.

Since I am now a member of its Board of Trustees (a position which is not only unpaid but requires a significant contribution) I suppose this message might be viewed as suspect. Suspect my motives if you like, but try the magazine out, you won't be disappointed.

Any one else have some testimony to offer?

I might as well jump in here. The two best sources for music and related info are The Mudcat Cafe and Sing Out!

I have been reading Sing Out! for a few years now but I do not ever see any mention of the web site in the magazine. I have heard rumors of a conflict between the two. This would be sad to see. If there are any readers out there who can influence things please make sure that the website and the magazine work together in the interests of the music we love.

I am not aware of any conflict between Mudcat and Sing Out! I am proud to be involved with both.

I really don't recall whether Sing Out! has ever mentioned Mudcat, but we do not usually write about e-communities. We write about Folk Music broadly defined, i.e., its performance, history and practice and we review more "Folk" CDs (with very knowledgeable reviewers) than anyone else.

I second Naemanson's sentiments.

Sing Out is indeed a fine magazine. They balance trad and modern folk pretty well. I give credit to Annie Hills' hubby, MARK MOSS, (S.O.'s editor), for their excellence in this new century and the latter part of the old one. The new inclusion of a CD with the songs from each issue is a wonderful added perk (for a nominal extra fee). I've read this rag since the late 50's and, along with Old Time Herald, these are the only magazines I want to read regularly now that I'm out of the folk loop.

And to speak of Mudcatters in evidence in the magazine, I've got to mention the fine column wriiten in every issue by old friend and once-in-a-while Mudcatter, Dan Keding. Dan's storytelling column is always a fine read. And Dan himself is one of the premier storytellers from the U.S.A. My favorite column is by Canadian, Ian Robb. I'd like more traditional content, but I know the good coverage of the best of what I sometimes facetiously call the navel-gazer singer-songwriters will appeal to so very many here at this site.

I can't believe everyone here isn't already a subscriber. Through the years, everybody I knew always was.

And while we are talking about Mudcatters in the current issue (winter 2001):

I'M THERE TOO ! Mark Moss asked for, got, and printed my personal reminiscence / obituary of the late, great, John Hartford from when we hung out on the Mississippi River the decade I played & told tales on the S.T.R. Julia Belle Swain (steamboat) and the riverboat TWILIGHT..

And here is the Sing Out website.

I notice there's a mailing list discussion forum. I tend to avoid these, because I get confused enough keeping on top of my email anyway, and I find the Mudcat forum much easier to keep track of. But presumably there are people who prefer the mailing list approach, and I'd imagine there'd be Mudcatters who were in this.

My feeling is that one way and another folk activities happening through the net are a significant part of the folk scene that deserves being taken into account in print publications. I haven't seen a copy of Sing Out in years, because I tend to pick up things in shops rather than go in for subscriptions - but when I did see it, it was and away the one I felt most comfortable with. I get fed up with the bitchy review of records and fan-interview approach of Folk Roots, and the local magazines are useful, but are limited in their approach.

I'd like to see a reciprocal link for Sing Out and the Mudcat on the respective websites. Symbolic, but useful as well.

I too, subscribe to Sing Out! and would do so even if I didn't read it just to support them. Sing Out! has a history that can't just be discarded and does a great job of collecting songs a reporting on artists and sources.

I was going to mention Art's great article in the current issue but I see Art beat me to it. That alone is worth the price of the magazine.

Sing Out! has pioneered the teaching of folk music and traditional playing styles. Thirty years ago they started binding sound sheets—flexible vinly records—into each issue. Now, as Bennet said, they make CDs available—a little more money but they last much longer.

Years ago in Chicago we had a group that today might be called a song circle. We called it The Friends of Sing Out! and, among other things, produced the occasional benefit concert to help out the magazine. I think Art performed at most of those and Pete Seeger came to perform for at least one of them.

Sing Out! also sponsors a free listserv through Yahoo. Lots of stupid ads but at least Sing Out! doesn't have to pay to have it. Some Mudcatters post there but I've met people through the Sing Out! listserv that I've never seen on Mudcat.

Please support Sing Out!, you won't be sorry.

      - Mark

NB: Now I'll have to go check but I seem to recall that Sing Out! does mention Mudcat.

Aye, Mark, good times those. The Sing Out benefit I was on had Marjorie Guthrie and Art Rosenbaum and Phil Ochs joined on a couple o' songs by his old college roomie from the U. of Ohio, Jim Glover. (remember Jim and Jean? Their version of Ochs' "Crucifixion" was stupendous.)---oh yeah, Malvina Reynolds and Ola Belle Reed were on that show too.

I know Pete Seeger was in Chicago for the benefit for MICHAEL COONEY after Michael was hurt so terribly in a crash with a drunk driver. It was Me and Pete and Steve Goodman and Cindy Mangsen. And as a final song we all did "Mama Don't 'Low". Bob Gibson came on for that song---as did Corky Siegel and Jethro Burns and Allan Damron from Texas. My three verses in that song were the musical saw, the nose flute and the jew's harp. Mr. Seeger had terrible hoarseness that day so Stevie and Jethro and some of us were out there with him for his set. And he was just amazing, as usual. It was such a kick. He'd play a verse on his banjo, sing two or three words, gesture to the audience to join in, and the audience would finish the song for him while Pete played and whistled along. And he got three encores !! Just great.

That benefit was at Stages Music Hall on North Clark St --- past Wrigley Field. Emily Friedman's Come For To Sing Magazine was behind it. That was November 4, 1979. Wow ! Twenty-two years ago ! Seems like yesterday.

Thanks for reminding me.

By the way, folks, a fellow nbamed Clay Eals from Seattle is working on what will be, I'm damn sure, a fine biography of STEVE GOODMAN. Look for it one o' these years...

Art, I'm sorry to say, I missed the Michael Cooney benefit in 1979. We left Chicago in 1976. I do remember the Sing Out! benefit you mention in which you performed. I got to meet Marjorie Guthrie too. That was a big thrill for me. You're right about Jim and Jean, gee that brings back memories. Yes, and Art Rosenbaum—I knew him a little in Iowa City as well. He and Al Murphy did a very nice old time album together. I still have my copy. Al and Aleta have reformed their band Harvest Home. I got to hear them together a little bit at the annual Old Fiddlers' Picnic in October. I think it's going to be a good band.

There was another Sing Out! benefit at the Quiet Knight that Pete headlined. Our band was asked to play as well. Funny, I can't recall who else played. I remember Bob Gibson playing a benefit at the Quite Knight but I can't remember if it was for Sing Out! or the one for Eddie B. with Studs Terkel as emcee.

I subscribe and also read (teary-eyed) Art Thieme's remembrances of John Hartford. My first stop is the book reviews...can't help myself.

Interesting to read about the forthcoming biography of Steve Goodman, Art. One of my great regrets is that I never saw him perform live.

Harvey Andrews, who visits here as a Guest sometimes has a great Steve Goodman story. Hopefully he will recount it one of these days.

Mark, I don't remember one for Ed B. Wasn't that one for Sing Out too...the one at the Quiet Knight with Pete? Ed Balchowsky was the caretaker of the Quiet Knight and he and Pete did a few songs together that night---pretty strange--Eddie couldn't hear Pete on the monitor. They did "Freiheit" and "Peat Bog Soldiers" from the International and Lincoln Brigades. Eddie on piano and Pete with his longneck. Hadn't ever played together before. Ed hitting discords on the piano with his stump. WFMT has tapes of that concert. I wasn't on that show I don't think but I was there. I know I've talked about Ed Balchowsky here I'm sure. [Folks, a forum search should find that probably. He was a vet of the Spanish Civil War. Lost an arm in a big battle on the Ebro River. Was a concert pianist before that. Got on morphine after getting it for pain then. He was a friend but... We were chasing the same lady around '65. I have a short docu-video about him---made after he died.]

Ah, nostalgia. ;-)

I love reading these reminisces, folks. I am going to subscribe straight away. Two of my treasures are my copies of The Collected Reprints from Sing Out!. I have both of them. I guess the first one is now out of print. It covers Volumes 1 - 6 from 1959 to 1964. Then there is the second one which covers 1964 to 1973. Are there any plans to do the rest in a collected version? These are invaluable as a resource for me.

All the best,

Mick

Been gettin' Sing Out since I was 15 years old. Much more than just a magzine to me...it was an introduction to a "lifestyle". They were very nice to take "Birth of Robin Hood" from my Folk-Legacy CD "Lifeline" and print it. Good folks from the git-go.

Mr. MacLeod,

It'd be nice to hear your friend's tale. We've had good threads about Steve here -- a while ago. I still miss him. Always will.

Mr. Sin...,

It was a pleasure to do that short piece. And an honor to be asked. I was lucky to know John also. By the time this issue came out John's passing was old news so I thought some light, even funny bits would be appropriate. Glad you enjoyed it.

Mark,----I think I've got some o' that M.C. benefit on cassette somewhere. I hope it still plays.

Art, your memory is very good. Eddie Balchowsky did play—beautifully, with one hand and a stump—on the same Sing Out! benefit with Pete. There was another, later, benefit for Eddie B. with Studds Terkel as emcee and most of the living members of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in attendance. They all got on stage and sang some of the old songs. The money from that concert went to Eddie—he was trying to get straight (again) and everyone wanted to help out. It seems to me that Bruce Phillips recorded something about Eddie. Now I'll have to go look that up.

I am very glad to have revived this thread. It looks like we may see a favorable blip in our subscriptions, which we can always use. Thanks for the support.

Several people responding here have asked me questions which might call for personal replies, except that I don't understand the workings of the Mudcat internal e-mail system so I will briefly respond here.

WyoWoman - Depending upon the organization involved I might be willing to serve on other Boards. It is best to contact me about that sort of thing on my personal e-mail: BZurofsky@ReitPar.com or at my law office: Reitman Parsonnet, P.C., 744 Broad Street, Suite 1807, Newark, N.J. 07102 telephone: (973)642-0885.

Wysiwyg - Sing Out! is always interested in participating in benefits, joint or otherwise. Other than our good will, artist contacts and ability to promote the benefit to our subscription list, however, we don't have a lot of resources to devote to the actual production of benefits. For this we are largely dependent upon particular Board members or other volunteers. I am probably as appropriate a person at Sing Out! as any to contact about putting together a benefit, so please feel free to get in touch with me at the above address to share your idea about a joint Mudcat/Sing Out! benefit.

Big Mick - Because demand for the "Collected Reprints" volumes is quite low, we have trouble keeping them in print. The capital cost of new press runs can be prohibitive when it takes a long time to sell through a pressing. I am not certain of the current status of the particular volume you seek but, even when we are "out of print" for trade purposes (since we cannot supply enough copies for the distributor to offer it to stores) we often have a few copies available that can be purchased directly from Sing Out! JohnInKansas was kind enough to copy all of our contact information onto this thread directly above this posting.

Speaking of "out-of-print" books, Sing Out! now operates Legacy Books (formerly of Hatboro, Pa.) and is trying to expand its services as a vendor of hard-to-find "Folk Music" books from other publishers, in addition to the books that we publish ourselves. The Sing Out Corporation is now considerably larger than the magazine, although that is still our best-known and largest enterprise.

Mudcatters might also be interested in our extensive hard-copy archive of books and recordings which is available to Sing Out! members at our Bethlehem, Pa. offices.

Keep those new, renewed, and reincarnated subscriptions coming in!
