    Sorry, sir, two different people with similar names. Tom "T-Bone" Wolk, longtime bass player in the SNL band, passed in 2010, but did indeed play mandolin on a lot of tracks - then again, so does Guy himself. Oddly enough, Thom Wolke is Guy Davis' manager.

    Thanks. My mistake, two Thom Wolke's with similar career paths.

    Two paths which intersected, in the studio. I wonder if T-Bone got the gig because of the name. It's too good a coincidence to ignore.

    Love those pics JB, and the interesting tales. I've seen numerous pics of a young Joanie in bikini from Marina as well. I know it had to have been a blast picking with Erik ... it would really be cool to hear that tape with the Tambourine Man on it!

    It's on youtube. The sound quality is rough, so you might want to skip ahead to 27:00. The photo has naught to do with the music; it just pictures them both. BTW, the channel has tons of stuff. Careful - it's easy to get lost in there.

    I see in the notes that's Richard Farińa on the left. And it's from Dylan's first trip to England in 1962.

    WHOA!! What I get for not paying attention - didn't realize there were 106 before me, AND that Ranald had already id'd Ian in that railroad car photo. Still gonna miss him, though.

    Aside:
    In '84 maybe, gas station window in Jackson, WY, had a concert poster for "Ian Tyson and the Chinook Arch Riders Band"... the previous night! It still hangs on my wall.

    Actually, he died late last year, 12/29/22. He was part of what seemed like a sudden rush of people to give up the ghost after what was a helluva year for a lot of people, not willing to take a chance on what 2023 would bring. (I know that's not how these things work, but it was like this past week: one after another, again and again.) Other greats we lost in the last days of 2022 include Anita Pointer, Barbara Walters, and Pelé.

    But about Ian Tyson: Many reminiscences cited "Four Strong Winds" and "Summer Wages," as well they should. But my personal favorite song by him is "Someday Soon," so memorably done by Judy Collins. It might be the recording more than the writing, but it's such a great single. Also, one of my favorite one-hit wonders of the Folk-Rock Era is "You Were On My Mind," by We Five. Great arrangement and performance.

    Oh, wait - written by Sylvia alone. Never mind ...

    I've always been enamored of the guitar tone in that song. I would love to know exactly what guitar and rig (with all the settings) produced that sound.

    Surprise, surprise! There's a wikipedia page, with lots of information about it - but nothing of that sort. Still, I'm impressed that it went to #3, and Billboard had it as the #4 song of the year. I didn't think it was that big of a hit.

    BTW, the band's founder, Michael Stewart, was the brother of John Stewart of The Kingston Trio. That's him on the left.

    It's funny, I know that John Stewart was the second banjo player that the Kingston Trio had after the Dave Guard debacle but I never think of John in the context of being in the trio, I think of him as a stand alone artist that was pretty amazing on his own.

    Honestly, I'm not 100% sure I knew that, either. But wikipedia mentioned that factoid, so I passed it along. It seemed relevant insofar as this association might have helped Mike's career get a leg up. More than that, I dunno.

    Rig & settings, not so much. But various photos, even if not super-clearly, do show a Rickenbacker 12-string (credited to Bob Jones on Wiki).

    The sound alone, at least to me, is obviously electric 12-string. I might guess at a Vox amp, w/ 10% chance of accuracy!

    Here are a couple of photos of the Osborne Brothers with Dale Sledd taken at BeanBlossom in 1968. I was a student at Indiana UniversityBloomington and made frequent weekend trips to Bill Monroe's Brown County Jamboree.Click image for larger version.

    I was at Lucinda's show in Glasgow last night. Long-time fan but first chance to see her live.
    She had to be led onto the stage.
    Later, she explained she'd had a stroke in 2020 - I guess most of the fans knew it already but I don't follow artists in that way, just listen to the music.

    So she still can't play guitar since then but "I can still sing!" as she said.
    Great performance, great band.

    She turns 70 on Thursday.
    "I'm tellin' everybody my age!" she said joyously from the stage, "I don't care who knows it"

    Yes, it was touch and go there for a while. Wasn't sure if she would be able to perform again. She's come a long way back, but still struggles. She's had to rely on her book of lyrics more than she used to. And she isn't socializing after shows anymore. Glad for what we get from her, which is still better than most, IMO. Sadly, missed her this summer - the show I was going to go to got cancelled because a couple of people in the tour got covid. On top of everything else. Not her, though, thank goodness. Yeah, if it was easy, more people would do it.
