MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VIC SADOT
Vic Sadot another Delaware Native now living in Berkeley California has an informative website at: http://vicsadot.com/.
I found a YouTube Video published uploaded in 2009 about Delaware called “The Fog Watch”.
The Fog Watch was a poem by Vic Sadot’s Uncle George Reuter that Vic adapted to music. The poet looks into the fog and a vision of the past comes rolling through. There are two drovers in an oxen drawn wagon taking their harvest to market. In the days before paved roads this trek was an annual overnight adventure that the farmers looked forward to. As they trod over the muddy roads they talk about what they want to buy when they get to the market in Dover, Delaware. “First I’ll buy cloth for my good lady Sadie, a bottle of rum for my good neighbor Brady, flour for biscuits, some bacon and beans, seed for growing spring garden greens on my land. ” A trip that takes us a few hours today required an overnight stay at the Mermaid Tavern Inn on the way to and on the way back from the marketplace.

Vic Sadot Tribute to our late great friend and songwriter, Phil Ochs. He was the main anti-war singer/songwriter of the Vietnam War era. He had more than 70 songs published in Broadside, the National Topical Song Magazine
Bourbon Street is a tribute to the famous party street in New Orleans. It has three verses in English and three verses in French that say the same things about the music, dance, romance, and the unique cuisine of New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayou. It was written in 1993, a year after Vic Sadot travelled to New Orleans and the Acadiana region along the Gulf Coast. The song was released in 1997 by Vic Sadot’s Planete Folle Band on a CD titled “Comin’ Home”. Mike Reynolds plays the joyful accordion. Earle Brown plays the soaring saxophone, and Dennis Hertzog plays the dancing fiddle. Dave Sumner provides the hot sauce for the recipe with his sizzling guitar. The legendary Chris Sherlock is on playing his signature drums. That steady rocking bass is Monty Cullum.
A YouTube I created from one of Vic’s song’s “Volcano” – as a Tribute to Nelson Mandela — on the occasion of his passing.
