Thread Name: Copy of Tom Paxton's debut live album?
Subject: Copy of Tom Paxton's debut live album?
Hi Friends, I wonder if any of you have copy of the 1962 debut album of Tom Paxton, called "I'm the Man That Built the Bridges". It was recorded at the Gaslight Cafe, two years before Tom's first studio album.

I searched discogs, Amazon, iOffer and eBay, still not a single copy for sale did I find. The album was limited to about 2000 copies, so I really didn't expect to get an original LP, but I can't even find a bootleg cassette or ripped digital copy of that recording anywhere. Are the tracks from that album still available to listen?

I was thinking, though, that this album is kinda similar to John Denver's 1966 debut album "John Denver Sings", which was initially limited to even less copies (less than 300), but got an official CD release recently. So will Tom's 1962 album get an official re-release someday as well?
