Bob Stuart CDs
Bring Out the Banjo
Here is something you might not know about. One of our local heroes, and an old ship-and-stage-mate of mine, Bob Stuart, has lost his ability to perform these days, much to our collective sorrow.
However, he has amassed an impressive collection of his own recordings over the years, with a variety of material from traditional to contemporary and his own originals.
We are offering these CDs for sale here until he gets his own website.
I am happy to think that some of you can get to enjoy the lovely voice and the lovely man who has enriched our soundscape here for so many years.

Gordon's latest release
"Here's a bit of a landmark: selections from my first commercial recording in a New York Studio, and tracks from sessions at home - 50 years later. Peggy Seeger wrote "I am old, I am young, I am all that I've been," and it's true that all the songs I have sung have guided my life and are still a part of me.
So here are songs (and tunes) from that 1965 album, some recently made or learned, and some old songs recently visited. Carol says it feels like thumbing through a musical photo-album.
After all, now wouldn't have have ever gotten here if it wasn't for all that then, eh?"

Then and Now
By Gordon Bok
Remastered selections from Gordon's very first album on the Verve label (1965) combined with his latest new recordings on this album. This album shows the timelessness of Gordon's music - a true gem with the rich bass of his youth, the comforting wisdom of his lyrics and the evolution of his style.
"Fifty-five years ago, Noel Paul Stookey offered to produce an album of my music. I had another good trade at the time and didnít feel ready to commit to that, but in 1965 we went into a studio in New York and he guided me through the process...So here are selections from that original recording (that so many of you have asked for) and some that Iíve recorded in the last year or so in my home in Camden."
