Thread Name: Obit: Ed McCurdy has passed away (1919-2000)
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy has passed away
Thank you for posting Yaeger's moving eulogy, Mike. Ed was a tremendous force and a significant influence on me. I am one of those many people Yeager mentioned that phoned him from time to time. I can agree that Ed remained outgoing, alert and interested in folksong.

He was flattered and pleased that he was still remembered at all. But he would definately not like to be remembered as some kind of "eroticist" and certainly not as a "vulgarian." For a few years he actually regretted that he made Dalliance at all. Then he had another listen and decided they weren't that bad after all.
