Footnotes to East Virginia

Late in 1963, Joni wrote out a list of 28 songs in her repertoire- of which this was one. All were presumably considered for performing at the 1963 'early' session in Saskatoon (released on Archive Series 1) although this one was not recorded.

Ramblin' Jack Elliott sang East Virginia Blues in 1958 on his Topic album with Derroll Adams, The Rambling Boys. Pete Seeger sang East Virginia in 1959 at the Oberlin Folk Music Club at Finney Chapel. Joan Baez also recorded it, along with countless bluegrass bands to follow.
