  2. I got this when it came out and treasured it so much. Even when I found out the "At My Window" version was just a mix missing the the rhythm tracks, released by mistake instead of the actual acoustic version. I saw Billy do an in-store set around this time that is still my favorite performance I've seen him do. He did "Black Wind Blowing" which I was constantly dying to hear again until it came out on Vol. 2, and I was obsessed with "Bugeye Jim" on the EP because it at least sounded similar!

    So... Vancouver Folk Fest, eh? Are you from 'round those parts? I'm in Portland myself but a veteran of many VFMFs. Not as early as the one where Billy would've just written the Ochs song, but I was at every one from '96 through '04 and again in '06. Haven't been back for it since but for years it was the event my whole year practically revolved around! My first year there I discovered Dan Bern. Are you into him?

    I'm gonna dig up that old BB review I wrote so I can remember the other couplea good lines in it and share 'em with ya!

    I've been a Winnipegger for much of my life but I've visited Van. plenty (and lived there during the early 90's - also visited Portland once and loved it).
    I'm a huge Dan Bern fan and have been planning a post* for ages, though I've been unsure of what the reaction here will be.
    *I have a boot of his show from wpg that a friend did, it's a little boxy-sounding but good.
    Le me know when you put the article up and I'll do a link.
