Re:RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT THREAD 5 Years, 4 Months ago  
o my l--rd Warren, i just got to this, i can't believe it, i just finished watching the harry dean stanton doc, the theme of his Paris texas film seemed to be the theme of his doc too and here's the real Marathon texas from the film behind Mr Faier.

and too, when Mr. Faier talks about Woody saying he held nothing sacred, that same sentiment echoed like the Ry Cooder slide guitar from Paris in both the harry dean stanton doc and the sam shepard doc that i watched right after it.

the counterpoint Mr. Faier and Ramblin' Jack make is also there in the doc when sam's shepard friend's says "everything counts" - thats the victory over the desert, the point Woody was saying, joining into the fight to change counts, hopelessness and anger are a starting point, not the end point.

sorry to go on, those two docs were very well done and i've been made to ruminate on those themes - and it's your fault, you posted the answer with Mr Faier and Ramblin' (and Woody) giving the clue to the victory over the desert! can you believe he also mentions that there also was "a jazz player on the road trip being gruff with the folkie" just like in the Coen's Llewyn Davis film? unbelievable. then to hear of the reaction in Okemah, like the Paris texas movie all over again, in real life, surreal. i really admire these two guys, Faier and Ramblin' for staying true to their code of the road.

Some of you will be familiar with some of the anecdotes, but there are a few fresh ones, and the Ramblin' Jack humor surfaces here and there in the telling of the tales. Bob is cited several times.

Dateline JL 24th:

Incidentally, Elliott turns 83 on August 1st.

"This" being the Billy Faier video.

quanta, I just got to your post. I scanned it, initially, with the intention of getting back to it. No need to apologize about going on. I know what it's like to catch the fever. I enjoyed your interesting (and thoughtful) read. And speaking of "reads," a tour without your "day-by-day" posts has the feeling of something missing around here. Hopefully, you're just taking a break.


Ramblin' Jack is on the road again with upcoming gigs from AU 17 to SE 13 in:

CA, NV, CO, WI, IL, MI, and MO

Re:RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT THREAD 4 Years, 9 Months ago

From the Uncut Version of the AARP interview:

Q: This is a wide-ranging curation of songs from what people call the American Songbook. But I noticed Frank recorded all 10 of them. Was he on your mind?

A: You know, when you start doing these songs, Frank's got to be on your mind. Because he is the mountain. That's the mountain you have to climb even if you only get part of the way there. And it's hard to find a song he did not do. He'd be the guy you got to check with. I particularly like Nancy, too! I think Nancy is head and shoulders above most of these girl singers today. She's so soulful also in a conversational way. And where'd she get that? Well, she's Frank's daughter, right? Just naturally. Frank Jr. can sing, too. Just the same way, if you want to do a Woody Guthrie song, you have to go past Bruce Springsteen and get to Jack Elliott. Eventually, you'll get to Woody, but it might be a long process.

Jack on the water. Tells a Merle Haggard story and talks sailing.

This article, retitled "Bob Dylan and the Revolutionary Jews," was one I missed the first time around (not that it was necessarily posted at ER at the time under its original title, "Cosmopolitan Folk Music" ). I confess to not having yet finished reading the article. What I have read, however, I found to be utterly fascinating.

It is loaded with references to all kinds of individuals, household names and otherwise. I posted it, here, because Jack Elliott is written about extensively in several places. (Don't let the article's 30,000 words scare you off, dear reader.)

This piece is a literal goldmine of information and anecdotes. It also has some terrific photographs (check out how much a young Abe Zimmerman looks like his son). Hopefully, the article will generate some interest and discussion.

8:00 PM

Harris Center for the Arts
10 College Parkway


Dec 14, 15, Monday, Arcata, CA
8:00 PM

Van Duzer Theatre
1 Harpst St/Humboldt St. Univ.
707-826-4411

Because Elliott never recorded an album for Elektra, I suspect the version of "Pretty Boy Floyd," below, was in the vaults for some decades.

It was probably recorded in either 1961 or '62 at the latest, Elliott having returned from a half-dozen years in England and Europe in 1961. That would be the year Bob Dylan met him when Jack went to see Woody at the Greystone Park State Hospital.

A current interview, courtesy of Scott Miller and ER:

EDIT: The following sentence should read Roy Acuff, not George Acuff.

I loved the music of George Acuff, Jimmie Rodgers and Woody Guthrie, and then I met Woody when I was 19.
