I can smell the old coffeehouses and re-live those first hoot nights, believing that through this music we were somehow being tranported away from who we started out as and aiming towrd something truly important. (ha) But it was important -- wasn't it?--and the linch pin for so much of what shaped the decades to follow. "Revival" has the lingo and the flavor, and just the right tone. Thank you for writing it, and bringing to life what so many of us lived and loved, and still do. I can just hear the harmonics at the end, and Tom Rush saying, "She's gone everywhere but home". Both players and listeners of folk music can get completely wrapped up in this story.
