Rambling through with David Blue

John Tobler, ZigZag, April 1974

EVERYONE IN any way interested in rock music and its development knows that Bob Dylan spent some of his formative and pre-star years in Greenwich Village, New York. They will also know that he became the hub of a sort of talent circle, which included Tom Paxton, David Van Ronk, Phil Ochs, Eric Andersen, Patrick Sky and so on. Many of the names that were ticked for stardom at that time seem to have effectively fallen from view, but certainly one, David Blue, is still keeping on keeping on, still trying with quite some effort to, shall we say, fulfil his potential.
