Guy Clark, one of Ramblin' Jack's pals, died yesterday, MA 17th, at age 74. Here he is singing a beautiful "Dublin Blues," in 2010, in Texas. Clark, born in 1941, appears on a couple of songs on Elliott's Friends of Mine album, from 1998:

A recently remastered Derroll Adams disc:

https://ghostsfromthebasement.bandcamp.com/album/feelin-fine

Includes "Freight Train Blues" plus additional recordings not on the original Feelin' Fine album The whole album can be heard at the link.

Scroll to bottom of the link for recording details.


Guardian Review from JA 12, 2017:

Derroll Adams: Feelin' Fine review - welcome reissue of folk hero's great songs

Derroll Adams, who died in 2000, was an American banjo-player, singer and song-writer, and one of the most colourful figures on the folk scene. He travelled across the US, met everyone from Woody Guthrie to James Dean, and worked as a duo with the legendary Ramblin' Jack Elliott. After they toured together in the UK, Adams stayed on here to be treated as a hero in the folk clubs, and famously introduced Donovan to Dylan.

These recordings from the 70s, released on CD for the first time, show Adams at his very best. His instrumental work includes a rapid-fire treatment of Muleskinner Blues, while his voice is deep and delightfully laid-back. The songs range from the traditional Darling Corey and Wildwood Flower- both helped by backing from the still-excellent British guitar hero Wizz Jones - to his own thoughtful, autobiographical compositions such as The Sky. A welcome reissue.

Ramblin' Jack Elliott, at 85 years. Elko, Nevada, FE 2017

What follows is a recent (FE '17) podcast interview with Elliott. The first four minutes are of the host reciting a poem, followed by a banjo interval where the host gives a bit of background about Ramblin' Jack, and then the interview begins at about the six-minute mark.

It will either bore you to tears or leave you hanging on every word:

I stumbled upon this video a while ago. It was broadcast in 1999 on the day of the Grammy Awards. Just past the one minute mark, the narrator mistakenly says "half a decade." He no doubt meant to say, "half a century."

Sitting on the right of the screen where Jack doffs his hat is legendary film actor Gregory Peck. Peck is cited in Dylan's "Brownsville Girl."

From the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation:

Ramblin' Jack Elliott, in Toronto to perform at the Riverboat, talks to 90 Minutes Live host Peter Gzowski about horses, sailing, Johnny Cash, and joining the Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975. Asked for one Woody Guthrie story, he tells a long story about meeting him - "they call me ramblin' but I don't know if it's cause I travel or cause I talk so much."

http://www.cbc.ca/archives/entry/ramblin-jack-elliott-on-90-minutes-live


I happened to stumble upon this video, last night. IMO, the video (recorded in 1976) is well worth watching if you have an interest in Elliott (or Bob or Woody, for that matter). Elliott is 44 or 45 at the time. He turns 87, on AU 1st, still does a handful of gigs, here and there - recently opening for John Prine - and was seen backstage at Dead and Company's Mountain View show in early July.
