Bob Stuart CDs

Hello, Folks
Here is something you might not know about. One of our local heroes, and an old ship-and-stage-mate of mine, Bob Stuart, has lost his ability to perform these days, much to our collective sorrow.
However, he has amassed an impressive collection of his own recordings over the years, with a variety of material from traditional to contemporary and his own originals.
We are offering these CDs for sale here until he gets his own website. I am happy to think that some of you can get to enjoy the lovely voice and the lovely man who has enriched our soundscape here for so many years.
~ Gordon Bok

Gordon's latest release

Then and Now

Then and Now

"Here's a bit of a landmark: selections from my first commercial recording in a New York Studio, and tracks from sessions at home - 50 years later. Peggy Seeger wrote "I am old, I am young, I am all that I've been," and it's true that all the songs I have sung have guided my life and are still a part of me.
So here are songs (and tunes) from that 1965 album, some recently made or learned, and some old songs recently visited. Carol says it feels like thumbing through a musical photo-album.
After all, now wouldn't have have ever gotten here if it wasn't for all that then, eh?"
                          ~Gordon Bok

Bury the Blackbird Here
Bury the Blackbird Here
By J.B. Goodenough
For years, poet Judy Goodenough traded poems, songs and inspiration with Gordon. Before she died, she asked Gordon to publish her last book of poetry. Not afraid to tell it like it is, her poems are rural New England, as raw as the granite hills. Sometimes eerie, often humorous, Gordon says, "No one could snap my literary garters like she could."
