John Stewart RIP - "I Remember America"

SAN DIEGO, CA -

Over the weekend the world of folk music lost pioneer John Stewart, the man whose most famous work was the penning of the song "Daydream Believer" - but greatest accomplishment was influencing more well known musicians through the 1960s. Stewart was a member of the Kingston Trio - performing the group's songs until they officially disbanded in '67. He went on to have an accomplished but commercially quiet career - finally earning some overdue recognition is his later life. Rather than include the sing-song version of Daydream Believer, or his own (more crackled) version - I opted to share one of his later tracks. It demonstrates the level of work he was accomplishing long after he left the spotlight. John Stewart (1939 - 2008).
