Seventeen years after their benchmark album, Gibson & Camp at the Gate of Horn-purportedly folk music's first gold record-Bob Gibson and Hamilton Camp are reunited on this, their only studio recording. It was created in 1978 in the home studio of old friend and musical colleague, Dick Rosmini. "Jimmie Rodgers" is Shel Silverstein's salute to daydreaming wannabes everywhere. In "Dead on the Run" Gibson describes the slow life and quirky characters who make up the small town of Mendocino in Northern California where he often took up residence and in "Billy Come Home" he shows us that greener pastures may not always be as green as they appear. Gibson & Camp were one of the most highly regarded pairings in folk music and their musical influence can still be felt today. About Bob Gibson (1931-1996) A super star of the folk music renaissance, Bob Gibson revitalized Michael Row Your Boat Ashore, introduced Day-o and wrote Abilene and Well, Well, Well, songs which have all become an intrinsic part of American folk music repertoire. He popularized the 12-string guitar, banjo and folk music in general, recorded more than 20 albums and performed coast-to-coast. His musical legacy lives on through the many musicians he mentored (Joan Baez, Judy Collins, and David Crosby), the writers he introduced (Shel Silverstein, Tom Paxton) and the generations of banjo players, guitarists and troubadours who keep his music alive by making it their own (Roger McGuinn, Josh White, Jr. and troubadours the world over). About Hamilton Camp (1934-2005) For more than four decades Hamilton Camp maintained a dual career. He started in movies at age twelve and went on to play both comedic and dramatic roles in the theater and in nearly 100 films and TV shows. As a folksinger and songwriter he wrote dozens of songs and recorded nine albums. His involvement with music began at the Gate of Horn in Chicago in 1959 where he and Bob Gibson recorded their classic folk album 'Gibson and Camp at the Gate of Horn.'
