Hi Elizabeth,
Huge John Stewart fan, he put out some incredible albums in the early 70's, if you can find it check out "California Bloodlines" and "Cannons in the Rain" , just a great songwriter. Take Care

Does anyone here remember John Stewart (sang with the Kingston Trio for a while)? He was under contract with Reprise at the same time GL was. I really like his music and wonder what has become of him. Does anyone out there know?

I have both 'California Bloodlines' and 'Canons in the Rain' and I love them both. I also like some of the songs on 'Sunstorm'! His songs have the ability to make me cry and laugh. "Anna on a Memory' and 'Julie,Judy, Angel Rain' can bring tears while 'The Lady and the Outlaw' breaks me up everytime I hear it.

I really only know the 1979 song,"Gold",w/Stevie Nicks on back-up vocals. Still,cool song though.

Hi there Borderstone - Like GL, John Stewart's a;bums are all worth having. The two mentioned here "Calfornia Bloodlines' and 'Canons in the Rain' are both excellent. Are you going to make any of the GL concerts this year?

I, along w/ Rhea and Mott attended John Stewarts concer last weekend at McCabes in Santa Monica.

We're all looking forward to John's House Councert (at Jimmy Duke's O-Dark Thirth in San Diego) this June

John's new music is as grounded as his "classics."

There remain a few priceless things in this life: Brother Ray, Gord and John Stewart come to mind this evening.

I just posted a message for the Rez on the other identically entitled topoc in which I advised how to delete the duplicate. Now I realise that if the Rez goes ahead and deletes the topic my notes will be also deleted so I am reproducing my message here
too...
One of the advantages of being a member is that unlike other message boards such as the Newsgroup alt.music.lightfoot... http://www.newsgroup.shorturl.com

if you make a bog of a new topic or any posting you can simply click on the second from the right icon above your message
(if you mouse over it you will see that it is entitled "edit/delete message"
Then if you click on it you will then get your original typed screed up to edit or check the box that is annotated
"Delete? To delete this post, check this box.
Note: deleting this post will result in the deletion of the entire topic, since this post is the first post in the topic."
So you can either edit your posting or remove it together with all replies that have so far been made.
TIP
If like me you are prone to mis-type and are editing for that reason then each time you edit a new message saying that you have edited the posting gets appended.
If you need to re-edit as I sometimes do you can then remove the damning evidence of earlier editings by simply deleting the existing edited note(s) at the bottom

on the duplicated John Stewart topic started by "the Rez: at:- http://www.corfid.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/002996.html
silverheels opined
"No offence intended guys but why are we discussing JOhn Stewart on a Gordon Lightfoot forum? Shouldnt this be over at Small Talk?
If I have missed the Lightfoot connection, my apologies."
OK I have been in email touch with the rez as he wanted my advice/clarification on whether he should now delete that duplicate John Stewart topic- I have replied to say leave it as it is
(I now know his actual name and in one email he made a very valid point to refute the suggestion that the topic of JS should of/have been posted to the small talk forum instead of here
I would agree . In fact I suspect that many here ignore that forum or are blissfully unaware of it.I myself started what I thought was a useful topic on Tim Hardin there recently and made a connection between Tim and Gord at:- http://www.corfid.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000540.html
it linked to a most interesting BBC radio broadcast that was archived and I managed to make a recording of it, but my topic garnered one solitary reply (from brink) so possibly many others missed it so in retrospect perhaps I should of/have posted it here in the main forum regardless
the Rez said to me (and I am about to tell him that I am posting it here)what to my mind is a most valid point:-
"By the way, the cross-pollination of mentioning other artists in the proper context can be to the good. I'm a member over at Bloodlines (the John Stewart lines.) A fellow posted that a John Stewart thread was occurring at this site about Gord, which I didn't know existed. Presto! Here I am. This site is great. As much as I've loved JS music, even more have I been astonished by Gord"

John Stewart is awesome. I try to never miss the Daily Show....he's hysterical, and the expressions on his face in response to a story are often funnier and say more than 1000 words ever could! Rock on John Stewart!

I assume that you deliberately posted this reference to Jon Stewart the comedian which would definitely have been a "Small Talk" forum topic
Although Gord tries his best to be funny in his on-stage comments in no sense could you call Gord a comedian surely??

Well this is true John. But in my defense, I DID end my post with "Rock on Jo(h)n Stewart" Surely this ties in with music and by extension Gordon Lightfoot and would therefor be permissable on this board.

No, John replaced Dave Guard, who left the group. Nick is still alive, but is reportedly in poor health. John had visited with Nick on the day he had his fatal stroke.

That Woodsong site is great; thanks Station and jj. Another artist I looked for in there I had a used LP of long ago, and would kill to have again featured what I found out tonight is a classic tune of the Great Lakes regional folk history.

I can't remember his last name, George (.....) , singing "Fire In the Jack Pines" on an album titled same. He sounded very much like a young UA Lightfoot is why it caught my attention when I tried it in used folk aisles for about 50 cents.

I googled, yahoo'd, ask'd, info.com'd - all the big boys' search engines for the song ...Jack Pines, and I kept getting references to the proliferation of the Jack Pine species of tree after wildland fires, because they had a unique "serotinous" pine-cone that hides seeds from fire, and releases them afterwards from heat. Fascinating, but totally irrelevant. I'm sorry.

OK the song - I finally found in the only musical reference from searches by a lady named Degan, who sings celtic folk and just about everything traditional including "Shortnin' Bread...." , but no George (....). Does ANYBODY know who this was, and his great cover of Fire In the Jack Pines ? I realize this is off-line from the thread, but we seem to be cutting a little more slack these days Thanks

steve, in my opinion, you apologize too much (and you're not even a Canuck, lol)

hey, I don't know this singer but if it aint here http://www.ibiblio.org/folkindex/index.htm then I don't know where it would be found online

btw, when they re-did this site, all my posts got cloned as stationmaster's ...as I mentioned, it was through browsing ed mullen's site that I found woodsongs.com - I can't believe it was only 5 years ago, seems like a decade ago ....ron, has also highly recommended that others enjoy this site - I refer folks to it weekly in my non-cyber life

goodluck with the George hunt! and I'm very "sorry" I couldn't assist, lol
