Thomas Stern Obit: Israel 'Izzy' Goodman Young (1928-2019) (18) RE: Obit: Israel 'Izzy' Goodman Young (1928-2019) 06 Feb 19


I visited the Folklore Center many times in the 1960's and 70's - at
the MacDougal St. location and when it moved to 6th ? Avenue. A wonderful source of books/magazines/records.
The Center hosted the release party for the Alan Lomax Southern Folk
Heritage Series (7 LP set, stereo recordings) - still have the
autographed box.
Also found the first Pat & Victoria Garvey album there.
He sponsored in store concerts by many performers, including many
"rediscovered" blues men.
For a short while he published a magazine listing folk performances in the area. IIRC this later became a section in Sing Out.

The TALKING FOLKLORE CENTER documentary (free on youtube) is also
available as a DVD, and Scarecrow Press has published
The Conscience of the Folk Revival: The Writings of Israel "Izzy" Young (2012)

condolences to family and friends.
