Doctor John Lyr Req: Mean Talking Blues (Woody Guthrie) (74* d) RE: Lyr Req: Mean talking blues--Woody Guthrie 01 Sep 99


Thanks for the information on Derroll Adams, Frank. There was a thread about him a little while ago but no one knew what had happened to him. I had a couple of Jack/Derroll LP's when I was at school years ago; now lost. We thought they were really excellent together and an escape from the "pop" stuff that we were supposed to like. And a link back to Woody and Cisco who were our big heroes in those times; still are but in a more mature (hopefully) way these days. Met Jack briefly in the late 50's but not Derroll. There are several CD's of both of them individually available but I have found one of them together. You were wondering somwhere about anyone producing "folk" material these days. I don't know about the situation in the USA but in the UK here there are several excellent performers singing traditional material and a series of singer/songwriters doing rather personal introspective (and dreary) stuff; not folk to me. However, Jez Lowe from the North East writes and performs some wonderful stuff, some of which I'm sure will pass into the folk process. Dr John
