July 29, 1963 Peter Paul & Mary’s Blowin’ in the Wind is released!
Damn the wind was blowin’ again today!
Got in at 2 a.m. from last night’s gig, had an 11 a.m. meeting with some clients because they were only in town today, and then I packed the car for another outdoor gig that was iffy cause of the weather.
But Dylan and Claudia and my niece Heather and I drove up to Mahopac to a friend’s house to play at their pool party. So we’re driving up the Taconic and it starts to hail and I’m sure this party is canceled but we drive right thru the storm into nice weather and and a beautiful party.
Thanks, Loretta, for good food and drink and good people. I had a few guests sing with us and we announced people diving off the diving board like they were Olympians and gave them scores (9.5 for the best bellyflop).
We’re heading to L.A. first thing tomorrow. Trying to pack. Trying to clean. Trying to sing a few tunes in advance in case we don’t find a piano at the hotel for the next five days. We’ll figure something out.
Blowin’ in the Wind is not a song I would normally play, but hey, I’m supposed to be a professional so I’ll play anything!
