Oh......and I thought it was to prove you weren't a figment of the imagination. Looking closely at the picture, you appear as more of a fragment.

I'm a little surprised that there is so little interest in Ramblin' Jack's pictures. Jon and I went to some trouble to post these.Oh well, wrong again.

I dunno guys.....Threads are hard to get a "read" on sometimes. Some of us are "commenters" and others aren't. A refresh on your part sometimes seems embarassing or silly or vain or whatever, but often people look at a thread and let it pass even if they like it. I have received a bunch of correspondence from people who saw the "Donation to Mudcat" thread, but didn't post to it.

Sometimes we get accused of "compulsive" posting when all we are doing is keeping a thread at the top so others like those I mention can see it. I wish at times that folks would just refresh a thread that's interesting even if they themselves have no comment on it. I've done it myself because I get too much flak for refreshing things with "compulsive" posting.

Good Pix!

kendall ... you don't look like a fat, old man! But I do like you better with your hat... just a personal preferance thing.

As for compulsive posting and refreshing ... sometimes good threads get pushed off the page by threads that are 100+ posts long and the only thing to do is to start "refreshing."

Dang!!   Those pictures are gone when I finally got around to kooking at 'em!! :>)

Seriously, if they are recoverable, i'd like to see them on the Mudcat Photos site. Jon, can you still find them? Or Kendall?

I just finished viewing a terrific DVD on the life of Rambling Jack, from when he first ran away from home in Brooklyn to the point where Clinton hung a National merit award around his neck at thr White House.

The DVD was produced and mostly filmed by his daughter Ayana, who had made a sort of major quest in her life to find out who the fuck this guy really was and what he really thought. Seems he wasn't much of a communicator, parentally.

The DVD is rich with pics and dialogue -- the Village scene in the late 50's, Arlo, Bobbie Dylan as a sprout, Pete, Dave van Ronk, Odetta, and a bunch of others.

Highly recommended fare -- it really brought me back to the Era. And it reminded me why I am glad I didn't try to earn my living singing. It apparently won the Sundance Festival in 2000 so I guess its been around a while -- apologies if this has all been covered before.

Amos....I've seen it a couple of times and there's a lot to learn in there isn't there. Everybody makes choices.......

I loved Arlo's comments......She also got lots of good stories and music out of him for it, but sadly not much for her. A difficult shell........

Blimey, that's twice this week things I'd put up have been reported as missing... I'm afraid that "tripod" site dissapeared without warning and I have no copies of anything like Kendall's pictures or MIDIs I may have put up there to link to from Mudcat. I'd realy only considered it as a site for "things for the moment".

Hopefully Kendall will be able to assist.

Well that sure is Jack sitting next to Kendall. Thanks, Sins!!

Anyway that DVD is a beaut.

Only thing missing from it is Kendall his own self.

RAMBLING JACK

IT WAS ON A THURSDAY NIGHT
AT THE "JUG O'PUNCH", THAT'S RIGHT,
A FOLK CLUB IN THE DAYS OF WAY BACK WHEN
I SAT IN THE SECOND ROW
LIKE I ALWAYS DID YOU KNOW
READY TO SING CHORUSES AGAIN
THERE WERE SONGS ABOUT THE FARMER,
THE PLOUGHBOY AND THE SEA
SONGS I LOVED THAT DIDN'T REALLY MEAN A LOT TO ME
'CAUSE THERE WERE NO FARMS IN MY CITY
AND NO SAILS UPON MY LEA
AND NO PLOUGHBOYS IN THE FACTORIES BACK THEN


WHEN GUEST TIME CAME AT LAST
AND THE INTERVAL HAD PASSED
A VOICE SAID "WOULD YOU ALL PLEASE SETTLE DOWN
'CAUSE ITS MY JOB TO SAY
LET'S WELCOME HERE TODAY
A LEGENDARY MAN OF GREAT RENOWN
HE'S RAMBLED EVER HIGHWAY
HE'S RAMBLED EVERY ROAD
HE'S PLANTED AND HE'S GATHERED
HE'S REAPED AND HE HAS SOWED
HE'S A WANDERER, A TRAVELLER
A MAN OF NO ABODE."
AND THAT'S WHEN RAMBLING JACK RODE INTO TOWN

AND WHEN HE TOOK THAT FLATPICK OUT
AND HAMMERED ON THE STRINGS
SUDDENLY THE TUNES WERE TIGHT
ALL THE WORDS HAD WINGS
AND I WAS HEARING SONGS THAT TOLD ME
ALL MANKIND ARE KINGS
THE DAY THAT RAMBLING JACK RODE INTO TOWN

AND WHEN THAT NIGHT WAS THROUGH
I'D FOUND A LOVE SO TRUE
A FLAT PICK AND SIX STRINGS WERE ALL I'D NEED
THAT KEROUAC OF SONGS
THAT TOLD OF RIGHTS AND WRONGS
UNKNOWINGLY HAD PLANTED ONE MORE SEED
NOW I'VE RAMBLED DOWN THE ROAD OF TIME
ANDTHERE'S NO GOING BACK
BUT I HAVE PLANTED SEEDS OF SONG
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE TRACK
SO HERE'S TO ALL THE TROUBADOURS
AND HERE'S TO RAMBLING JACK
SAFE JOURNEYS AND SAFE HAVENS
AND GOD SPEED.
