Croce: "Do you believe the Festival marked a comeback in your own career?" Hurt: "I certainly don't think it hurt," he answered laughing. "Of course my career has seen more comebacks than a Friday night fish fry. I've been around a long time, you know. My first record was for Okeh in 1928" - December 1963, young Villanova student Jim Croce asks a question about the recent Newport Folk Festival in an interview of Mississippi John Hurt for radio station WWVU, from I Got A Name - the Jim Croce Story by Ingrid Croce and Jimmy Rock (Da Capo 2012)

?Folklore is not as easy to collect as it sounds. The best source is where there are the least outside influences, and these people, being usually under-privileged, are the shyest . . . The Negro, in spite of his open-faced laughter, his seeming acquiescence, is particularly evasive . . . The Indian resists curiosity by a stony silence. The Negro offers a feather-bed resistance.?

Eric, Here's the transcription of the full snippet he did on Groucho's You Bet Your Life, demonstrating some of his translations of Shakespeare into Hip. We were huge fans of Buckley in the late '60s. There is a ton of his recordings on Youtube, as well as many covers by various actors. "Over the fence of now and onto the pad of the vance."

Hipsters, flipsters and finger (snap, snap) poppin' daddies: knock me your lobes
I came here to lay Caesar out, not to hip you to him
The bad jazz that a cat blows wails long after he?s cut out
The groovy is often stashed with their frames, so don?t put Caesar down

Wax,

Yes, quite a few evenings were passed in those days listening to His Royal Highness of the Far Out...if you haven't heard Jonah and the Whale, or the Nazz, or Marc Antony's Funeral Oration, well, you haven't lived life to the fullest.  I still have the Best of Lord Buckley on Elektra vinyl and play it from time to time.  I had no idea he appeared on Groucho's show, but that's perfect.

Ten thousand river commissions, with the mines of the world at their back, cannot tame that lawless stream, cannot curb it or define it, cannot say to it 'Go here,' or Go there, and make it obey; cannot save a shore which it has sentenced; cannot bar its path with an obstruction which it will not tear down, dance over, and laugh at - Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi
