Eric Von Schmidt: 2nd Right, 3rd Row
"Turtle Beach" is a promising tune that starts off
Eric Von Schmidt's 2nd Right, 3rd Row.
Other than that the albums is pretty darn dismal.
Eric Von Schmidt was one of the prime movers of the folk music movement in Cambridge in the early '60's. Baez and Dylan, among others, have been indebted to him for material time and again. Von Schmidt is probably most famous for Bob Dylan's aside about him during his tune "Baby Let Me Follow You Down". A stunningly beautiful version of Eric Von Schmidt's song "Joshua Gone Barbados" is sung by Bob Dylan and the Band on "The Genuine Basement Tapes Volume 5" bootleg CD.
Five of the tracks on this album feature Garth Hudson, who is credited for "special assistance."
