Hi all,
Kweskin's Jug Band was not the Even Dozen Jug Band.  The Even Dozen was on Elektra and Kweskin's was, at first, on Vanguard.  Personnel on the first Kweskin album:  Kweskin, Geoff Muldaur, Bob Siggins on banjo, Fritz Richmond, Bruno Wolf on vocals.  Second album added Maria D'Amato on fiddle and vocals, Bill Keith on banjo, and Mel Lyman on harmonica, and lost Bob Siggins.  I believe the only cross-over who was in both bands was Maria.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for the clarification, John. I guess I should have said, "Some of these folks may have crossed over." -G-

All for now.

After a cursory search I've found a lot of stuff of potential interest to Weenies on YouTube.com:

Muddy, Johnny Shines, R.L. Burnside, Kelly Joe Phelps, Cooder....

Did the Even Dozen ever actually perform?  I thought it was just a studio one-off.

Of course, Stefan Wirz had the answer to my question, if only I had looked: "they made a couple of television appearances; and they performed several times in concert, twice at New York's Carnegie Hall." 

Thanks, Stefan!

What a great clip - maybe some tech guru will match up the video with the sound one day. 

I don't think the guitar is a resonator though, but a sunburst double hole acoustic - still weird ass though - this could be in the Todd Cambio line soon!  :P

Since this thread was started Youtube took more rigorous action against copyrighted videos posted and many music related videos were removed.  Also, Google has now bought Youtube and done some deals with publishers and have put some of the videos back on Youtube.  In any case, I'm going to go through the topic and clean out the old broken links (and comments) and remove some unrelated videos.

Edit: Also, in case you had not noticed -- there is a Youtube BBC button that you can now use to post emedded Youtube and Goggle videos.  There are some other media BBC buttons - but they are disabled.

Isn't it a cool one? Thanks to bighollowtwang for pointing it out over on the IGS board.

It looks almost like the resonator well was covered over with unmatched wood...

Hi Pan -

The direct link isn't too tricky to master.

When you are creating a post, there are a few new buttons above the smilies. Sixth from the left is a YouTube button.

Click it and it will add the following code to your post (except with square brackets where the parantheses are currently): (yt=425,350) (/yt)

Then all you have to do is add in the part of the YouTube URL identifying the particular clip. Each YouTube URL as I understand it begins with "http://youtube.com/watch?v=" then ends with a code that identifies a video clip. In the case of your Elizabeth Cotten clip that would be Ps76dvRR0zw.

The URL for YouTube videos are on the YouTube pages just to the right of the video screen. Just copy the string after the = sign, then paste it into your post right before the (/yt) code. So like this:

(yt=425,350)Ps76dvRR0zw(/yt)

Looks like algebra right now but should result in a direct link with the actual square brackets in place.

Note that the link you posted is the result from a search so has more code. I don't know whether that would work as a direct link, but copying the right code from the URL section on the YouTube page will.

Thanks Uncle Bud. Rereading I suspect that's what Slack's "Greek" about "BBC buttons" were all about ? Thank you for the translation.

Greek!? C'mon Pan!  :P

Looks like the Bill Broonzy has been configured "by owner" not to play in embedded players, only on Youtube -- so, you'll need to put the link back on that one so folks can view on Youtube.

Great stuff, thanks for posting!

Hi Slack

Thanks for the tip, I put the URL (or whatever Greek that is ;)) back to the Broonzy post.

Actually I'm not to be thanked for all these wonderfull videos. "Weelie", a fellow finnish weenie member (a few posts here, I believe) just posted this YouTube link about a blues archive with 483 (!) blues and gospel related videos on YouTube, on a finnish musicians site:

http://www.youtube.com/groups_videos?name=therealblues

Oviously most are post-war, but there's still more stuff than I could ever post here.
I'll surely be missing cb artists I don't know of, and also some of you might be interested in the stuff that don't fit under the cb label, so I strongly suggest to take a good look your selves.

Cheers

Pan
