Together Again For the First Time
Live recording of Gordon Bok and Bob Zentz in concert together in Chicago, March 31, 1979. Relive their experience in this wonderful 2 CD set.
"In late March 1979, Gordon and I were on an odyssey of exploration, friendship, teaching, and learning. We tried to create a blueprint of the mystical “business” called “music”, but in reality, you can’t distill what we do down to a formula… it’s more like alchemy of old, lost to time but alive in our imagining.
Two old friends are now privileged to revisit it again in our later years. As the saying goes, you had to be there… but if you weren’t, you can be now."
~ Bob Zentz, 2017
"... [T]win treasures...A two CD-Set of 33 tracks with in-between introductions to each in a cardboard, three-part fold out case that has the most fabulous documentation of any CD, single or set I have seen in a long while!... Right from disc one's first selection "Picker and a Grinner" to disc two's last selection "Daddy Don't You Tell No Lies", they are gold mines of old songs that are far too rarely heard nowadays..."
~ Gerry Taylor, Folk and Music columnist, New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal.
"One thing in particular that I like about that concert is the relaxed, easy spontaneity of it, just two old friends getting together to make music - no pretentiousness, hype, or affectations. It's no wonder that the crowd needed little persuasion to sing along."
~M.B., folk fan
