A priceless clip, brief as it is. Sad there doesn't seem to be much footage of them as a group, although there are two fine documentaries about Howard Armstrong. They were a great group.
Yes. I saw at least one of the documentaries on POV. I think I still need to see Louie Bluie, but I saw this one: http://www.pbs.org/pov/sweetoldsong/
I had the pleasure of spending a half hour or so, sheltering from the rain, under the trailer of a tractor-trailer with Mr. Armstrong at the Philadelphia Folk Festival back in the early seventies. Wonderful fellow. We smoked a few cigarettes and discussed the state of things in the day. Just one of those little fond memories.
