Greenwich Village Folk Freaks

I just finished a back to back reading of Positively Fourth Street and Bob Dylan's autobiography and so I'm feeling a bit of love for the Greenwich Village folkies and the stuff that made them want to start playing in the first place. Also feeling much love for Mimi and Richard Farina (well Mimi especially), but Richard seemed like he was a cool cat, as well. I've got his book coming in the mail, this week hopefully. Take a listen. Folkin' Ay
