Subject: RE: Ann Benson: Who is she, Where did she go
I'm not familiar with Bonnie Dobson, but I will definitely look her up - thanks for letting me know about her.

I guess in 1969 I was listening to the usual suspects: Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Leonard Cohen, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian and Sylvia, Buffy Saint Marie, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Eric Andersen, Frummox, Willis Alan Ramsey, The Limelighters, and others whose names I don't remember. I think I got the song "High Flying Bird" from Judy Henske. There's a great song by Karen Dalton called "Are You Leaving for the Country" - have you heard that? I remember that she characterized her own voice as "vocal abrasions," but the song is awesome.

Great musicians, so long ago.
