Dr. John Rudoff
is a cardiologist in Oregon, but before he entered medical school, he was the staff photographer at The Main Point
, a coffeehouse in Bryn Mawr, PA associated with the early 1960s folk revival in the Philadelphia area. His photographs of the Philadelphia folk scene include unidentified local folkies
, but also touring folk singers such as Dave van Ronk
and John Hammond
. Eventually, Rudoff got a press pass to the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, where he took photos of Mary Travers sharing a moment with Mimi and Dick Fariña
and Joan Baez with a pre-psychedelicized Chambers Brothers
, but the most amazing discovery of all are the photos of when Bob Dylan "went electric."
And now you can see Rudoff's whole collection
, thanks to the magic of Flickr.

"If you had Bruce playing with you," Dylan wrote, in his 2004 autobiography, Chronicles, "that's all you would need to do just about anything."Bruce Langhorne
has quite the discography
. And a hot sauce
, to boot. And he's led quite the life. Here is Richie Unterberger's interview with Langhorne in Parts One
. And here
he talks with Unterberger about working with Mimi and Richard Fariña
. On a personal note, I will add that his hot sauce is hot indeed. Will buy it again.
