HELP US RESTORE UTAH'S FLANGER / CABOOSE

  Bruce "Utah" Phillips aka "Bow Tie"  was a  tried and true train tramp. Shortly after Utah signed with Philo Records in the early 1970's he purchased an 1890's era Vermont Railroad flanger,

What is a flanger?

  With help from a few friends he laid some track and set it at the end of a field opposite the "Barn" near North Ferrisburgh, VT. The "Barn" was the home of Philo's legendary recording studio where Utah recorded three albums, Good Though, El Capitan and The Telling Takes Me Home. Utah lived in the flanger on and off for several years while recording at Philo. Fast forward 40 plus years and Utah's old flanger came up for sale.

 It still lays idle in the same location next to the  old Philo recording barn. Our plan  is to relocate and renovate it back to the condition it was in when Utah lived in it. Our goal is to create a spot for folks to gather and celebrate the life and works of "The Golden Voice Of The Great Southwest"...Bruce "Utah" Phillips.
 

We are asking you to donate towards our goal of raising the funds necessary to ship Utah's old rail car from Vermont to it's new home at Black Butte Center for Railroad Culture (BBCRC) in Weed, CA.

"Yes, the long memory is the most radical idea in this country. It is the loss of that long memory which deprives our people of that connective flow of thoughts and events that clarifies our vision, not of where we're going, but where we want to go."

LOAFER'S GLORY / A HOBO JUNGLE OF THE MIND

Loafer's Glory was originally broadcast from KVMR in Nevada City, Ca. These broadcasts are a collage of rants, poetry, tales, and reminiscences mixed in with little known music and talk from over 1,000 tapes of everything under the sun, from tramping and labor (historic and contemporary ) to baseball and old friends... from unreleased Lord Buckley to animals, children, tall tales, Paul Robeson, and most of what you need to know about life on the open road... and always music.

U. UTAH PHILLIPS / STARLIGHT ON THE RAILS AND OTHER TALES

 Brother, have you seen starlight on the rails? To me it’s amazing how an eight-word line from the book Of Time and the River by Thomas Wolfe weaves its way through so much of my father’s work. There is the song itself, Starlight on the Rails, and the song’s introduction, also from Thomas Wolfe. And there is the four-CD box set, Starlight on the Rails, my father’s oral version of an autobiography, produced and released by AK Press. But the piece of my father’s work that is closest to my heart, is the little brown ninety-six page songbook entitled Starlight on the Rails and Other Songs, originally published by Wooden Shoe in 1973.  Read more....
