Album – Gibson & Camp …REVISITED
GIBSON & CAMP
(At the Gate of Horn)...REVISITED
It was Gibson and Camp in Chicago all over again – only now it was June of 1986 at Holstein’s. In honor of the silver anniversary of their legendary recording at the Gate of Horn, these two veterans of folk got back together to recreate their best selling album in its entirety. For four nights they sang the songs, revived the patter and electrified the audiences – just like they’d done 25 years earlier. This recording contains an additional three songs not recorded on the original album.
B*G Records 1986
In looking at the American folk music scene: if there could be said to be a linchpin between the old guard (Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, The Weavers and Leadbelly) and the modern era (Bob Dylan. Peter, Paul & Mary, Judy Collins, Tom Paxton and the others) it might well be Bob Gibson. Of all of his work, it is a blues-based Gibson and Camp [song]…Well, Well, Well that is my favorite.
NEWS, REVIEWS & NOTES
…remarkably fresh… With their creatively intertwining harmonies, the duo always sounded like more than two singers. All of that sounded just as exuberant 25 years later, as did the good-humored interaction between the two. There remained something magical about these performers together, which made the infrequency of their recording a frustration to folk fans, even as their few pairings stirred excitement.
