Hoot!: A Twenty-Five . .This book bills itself as a history of the music scene in Greenwich Village during the third quarter of the 20th century, more or less, and while the author did get people like Joey Ramone and Kurtis Blow (!) and Billy Joel (?!) to talk to him, the real meat of it is centered around the legendary Gerdes Folk City, which.

But one bit of real history of World War I that I can recommend to anyone is the viewpoint of the fellow on the other side of this "encirclement" business:Lord Grey of Fallodon, the British foreign minister during the war. If you've ever wondered who said "the lights are going out al. If you've ever wondered who said "the lights are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime," Lord Grey is your man. His memoirs are extremely readable - indeed, reading them one sees just why we have not seen the lamps lit again

Robbie Woliver's Hoot! is a superb overview of the Greenwich Village folk scene, rich with reminiscences by many performers and other people who were key players in the scene. It should be noted,however, that Hoot! is a retitled reissue of Woliver's book Bringing It All Back Home. If you've read Bringing It All Back Home and are expecting Hoot! to be a different book by the same author, it isn't. Except for the cover and title, the books are identical, page for page.

I've been doing research on the early years of the Folk Music Revival in Greenwich Village. After reading a number of books and articles it was wonderful to get my hands on a copy of Robbie Woliver's 'Hoot!' that has been out of print for twenty years. Thanks Amazon for making it available online, and a special thanks to Woliver for capturing all these memories. The first 150 pages are stuffed with interviews and first-hand accounts by the people who were there in the early 60s. Combined with my other readings, their words and observations just came alive. Hoot! goes on to 1985 and the 25th anniversary of Gerde's Folk City, but my focus was only on the early years.

This well thought out and skillfully written assessment/history of the Village during the folk years and beyond covers its material in a very readable fashion. Read in addition to Von Schmidt's 'Baby, Let Me Follow You Down: The Illustrated Story of the Cambridge Folk Years', you'll have the meat and potatoes of went down on the East Coast during the folk boom of the early sixties. Add another volume, 'Positively 4th Street : The Lives and Times of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Baez Farina, and Richard Farina', and you'll get savory gravy as well.
While not quite as personable as Von Schmidt's book, it catches the flavor of its subject very convincingly.
