      I have the recording of the 1964 NFF with Skip James on it. Great songs! He had just come out of the hospital and wrote "On my sick bed" for the festival. I think it also has my favorite song "Cyprus Grove". Great stuff. Thanks Tom.

      You'll have to tell me how to get slides made and how to scan them. I've come to photography very late and really don't know my arse from my elbow when it comes to film and slides. The quality of this shot is spectacular. I thought it was from today...and then I saw the name! What camera did you use for this one?

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Newport Folk Festival, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      Great shot from those halcyon days!

      Great Shot effectively...

      It's been a long time I'm looking for a good quality of it.
      Do you have it? Would you share it?
      Thanx a lot from a guitar player ...
