Re: Video from upcoming PBS Special
Chip Miller says in the notes that Bob is lip synching on the Dutchman (a great performance). When I watched the Rolling Stone video Jim posted, the Dutchman came up next and then a series of comments about the Trio, I assume from the special, including Harry Belafonte's daughter who said the Trio got their name from her dad (and also including some comments from Josh Reynolds). Following that, there was a really high quality copy of the whole Gertrude Berg show with NBJ. I'd seen it before, but it was interesting to see it again and in such good shape. It was fairly early for NBJ, they were pushing the College Concert album. The final number struck me (a Stewart tune), where Bob and Nick are doing their locked eyes thing to pump each other up, and John is trying to work in from the side but not making contact. John was SO young then, yikes. Bob and Nick together really defined that sound.
