OK, so I have a weird memory from tv of my youth. The great Merv Griffin once did a week of shows from Rio. when he spent an hour with Jobim he introduced the original inspiration for “The Girl,” followed by an introduction to the daughter of the original “Girl.”

Cable hookup would follow.

Not sure why I shared this either. Acid flashback? Good single though.

I was actually playing my autoharp with the "radio" turned down, grr. You already had a hammered dulcimer to day. But beware: Washington Phillips is not playing a Dolceola. In 2016, journalist Michael Corcoran discovered a 1907 newspaper article which reported that Phillips' name for his instrument was a "manzarene", and further described it as "a box about 2×3 feet, 6 inches deep, [on] which he has strung violin strings, something on the order of an autoharp. . . .

The Quietus site has an article on the new Frost and Fire reissue by the Watersons. Bright Phoebus gets a notable mention; it's been OOP for awhile and, hopefully, a reissue is forthcoming. I'm not that familiar with Sweeney's Men and it's the only artists in this spectacular set I don't own. I'm gonna have to rectify that.

BERT JANSCH: "She was a brilliant singer – really brilliant, very natural. We clicked straight away. She was pretty wild when I knew her, but then, I was even wilder! She has calmed down quite a lot. She does sing at home for her own pleasure and her voice sounds the same to me. I think any singer would feel guilty about not using that talent, but if you haven’t done it in a while, it can be hard." recordcollectormag.com...
