Mysha Folk singer from the 1960's - June Bugg (28) RE: Folk singer from the 1960's - June Bugg 28 Feb 15


Hi,

Palace 771 is titled: Nina Simone Sings Porgy - With The Village Allstars. (Apparently, that's to be read as "Simone with the Allstars on the same record", not as "Simone with the Allstars on the same song".)

Billboard 11 Sep 1965 has a bit about the drive against 'Misrepresenters', where they mention Nina Simone, June Bugg and Porgy. However, they are writing about "Sings Porgy" and "Second Album" as if there's only one album. Hence, I'm not sure the claims that Simone doesn't sing Porgy and that it's Bugg singing are indeed supposed to be taken together.

Apart from 2 versions of "The incredible voice", Freegal lists her for the albums "Girls with Guitars", "Acoustic Folk Generation Songs" and "Folk Music Masters". I don't think they give access to the covers for more information, though. Still, for someone with the right library card, this might be a way to listen to the songs.

Other than that, Deb mentions having heard her in earlier days, but she already said as much above, some time ago.

Bye,
                                                                Mysha
