For Gordon Stone: We tried to buy the masters of the Verve album production, but they even stonewalled Noel Stookey, who produced it. No matter; the songs are still free: which ones have you missed?
Dick S.: I call those pieces "collages", though "montage" would be more accurate. That one, about the two lobstermen, is called "Pretty".

Have you every thought of putting out the lp you did for Verve back in the 60's. There are 4 songs that were not released back then. It would make a good CD.
I meet you in Havard Sq. at a friend's apt.

Mr. Bok,

When I was a young man (30+years ago), my mother purchased the Sounds and Songs of the Sea(National Geographic), as I'm sure you remember it was a vinyl LP in those days. I'm writing just to let you know that even after more than 30 years, I can still hear "Queer Bungo Rye" in my head. I thought that you would like to know that your music has been heard as far west as Arizona, probably further. Hope all is well with you and yours. I know it's a bit of an imposition, but would be able to tell me where I could purchase an original LP copy of "Songs and Sounds of the Sea"?

Met you forty years ago at a small college in Ohio. Still have your little gaff-rigged autograph and most of your albums. Thanks for a lifetime of excellence.

I got your latest postcard in today's mail and emailed to a formerly long-lost friend now living in Maine, a link to your schedule. I've asked her to say hello for me if she sees you.

Thank you, Laura. A lot of people have asked about that song: I'll put it on the list to record on my "Request" album, which I hope to be recording this year or next. I've got a good list of songs for that already.
Good air and small clouds to you.

As a native New Englander transplanted to the Midwest, your songs always mean home to me. I've been collecting your albums since the vinyl era. I saw you many times back in the '80s in the Amherst, MA area and hope I can figure out a way to see you again. Have you thought about coming out to Cincinnati or Dayton? You would find a warm audience.Your songs are giving me heart through hard times.

Just found your site and wanted to say thanks for all the wonderful music you've done over the years. I used to sing Castle of Dromore (poorly at best) to my daughter when she was little as a lullaby and always loved Saben the Woodfitter.

Keep playing and my wife & I hope to see you again sometime in Rochester.

Great concert in Galesville this evening. Liz and I especially liked the melange (montage?) at the end involving overheard conversations. Nice to hear you in person after all these years...

Heard you in the Chocolate Church in Maine last weekend. You were fabulous. We especially loved Sherry's Song --it brought tears to my eyes and to others'--and hope that you will record it in the near future.---Laura

Don, I should be doing a concert and workchop again in Denver in a year or so, and perhaps find something in Co. Springs, then. As to Kagan's wife,I think it would take more than a little snow and wind to kill a seal,eh? but whether or not she could change back into human form might be another matter....

After many years just enjoyed one of your albums. I believe I first heard you perform in a concert with Pete Seeger at Colby College in about 69 or 70
upon the launch of the Clearwater ..do you remember that?

Hi Gordon,
Any chance of a concert in southern California anytime soon? Thank you. Peace. Linda

As always, thanks for all the beautiful sounds. I have a question. Will you ever consider coming to Colorado or at least west enough I can drive to see you? Also, did Peter Kagan's wife live?

27 March 2009, 05:03 pm

Thanks, Kristin, for making that connection; didn't see that one at all...too close to the trees, I suppose.

And Betsy, you asked about I call "To you in winter", a poem by Sherry MacMahon from Colorado, that I made a tune for. I also call it "Sherry's Song" I would like to record it this summer...I'll ask her what she'd call it.

Thank you for a lovely concert at the community hall at Woods Hole. The poem you read, "Covenant," made me think of Saben, the Woodfitter. I felt as if I were hearing the beginning of the story that Saben finished, the first expression of the bargain that he, in his humility, made good at the end. The poem and the song together, in such a moving way, show how much there is to be learned and gained in between.

I very much enjoyed our concert last night in Woods Hole, as I've enjoyed your music for years. I was particularly interested in one of the first few songs you sang, a poem you had set to music I think, smething like 'How shall I send my love in {winter} and I so far away...' Could you let me know if this has been recorded, and if so on which album? Thanks so much.

Hi, Gordon. I'll be at the Ark in Ann Arbor in April for your concert. I had been, much to the sorrow of my children, as I'm atonal, and no sense of rythym , singing along with some of your songs and playing Peter Kagin endlessly on trips.
Most all of your recordings that I have are on vinyl, except some that I have put on tape so that I could play them in the car. I have a friend, Capt'n Bob Miller, who claims to have everything that you recorded. Some day I'll hear them all.
Keep up the great work.

OOOps.. for some reason those chords got all mashed over to the left. Don't know what to do about that...but they ARE the chords I play. Sorry about that.
