I love those videos in which a sky full of clouds above a picturesque landscape is shown in fast-forward.
I get that same feeling listening to Buskin and Batteau sing the title track of their 2009 release, Red Shoes and Golden Hearts. David and Robin have conducted the introductions: a€?Exceptional intelligencea€¦ meet classical training. David and Robin were part of a Sunday evening group concert in Connecticut in mid-September They would be at rehearsals during the afternoon, but would talk during a€?down time.a€? We set up a phone interview to find out what their life paths would reveala€¦ Succinctly, it's been one hell of a ride. And then I got into folk music in high school, basically because a lot of girls were into it.
From April 1963 to September 1964, a network TV show called Hootenanny featured pop-oriented folk music. Later on, a different coincidental event occurred where David went to a concert to see Blood, Sweat and Tears, The Allman Brothers and Appaloosa, a band that Robin was in. After David got out of college, he was drafted and ended up in Army entertainment doing shows for the troops from the fall of 1966 to the fall of 1968. When he was around 8 years old, around 1956, Robin was on a trip with his family driving through the Adirondacks. Once, Dee Dee called to ask, a€?Do you want to get together and sight-read some classical music? Robin left Harvard after his junior year, because his father died and the family was broke. After the band made two albums, Robin's mother found a well-paying job doing translations for the Boston court system and Robin was able to go back to school.
Back at Harvard, he said, a€?I took a wonderful writing course with Kurt Vonnegut.a€? He remembers Kurt as a wise, generous man who, the more successful he got, the more he tried to give back to others. Pierce Arrow toured and opened for many big acts -- The Kinks and The Doobie Brothers among them. Things went well from there until one of the band members dove into a pool during an after-gig party and hit his head, breaking his neck. By then, David and Robin discovered that they were having more fun playing Everly Brothers songs backstage than they were doing the act onstage. The steps that occurred in the formation of David and Robin plus Marshall Rosenberg into a full act is a testament to the generosity and flexibility of Tom Rush. The beginning of the end for Buskin & Batteau started when they were booked as the closing act at the first-ever Friday night show at the Newport Folk Festival.
Robin did get involved with Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which supports children with with incurable cancer and blood diseases. Now they've both realized that the most important thing is the love of making music together. David and Robin were part of a Sunday evening group concert in Connecticut in mid-SeptemberA  They would be at rehearsals during the afternoon, but would talk during a€?down time.a€? We set up a phone interview to find out what their life paths would reveala€¦ Succinctly, it's been one hell of a ride. It was Christmas of 1939, and Ida and Viola, my two sisters, were working in Salt Lake City. The next thing I knew I received a letter from Ida telling me of her experience that morning.
The LaGrande 2nd Ward, of which I was a member and from which I was leaving for my Mission, gave me a farewell party as we customary in those days.
My brother Alex and his wife had not been to the Temple to have their marriage sealed since she had joined the Church a few years before.
Those of us going down to Salt Lake were Alex and Mildred, their two sons, Richard and Gerald, my sister Viola, and Dorothy Richeson, a friend, and myself.
Then, Monday morning, I checked into the Mission Home on State Street for the two weeks training they gave all Missionaries prior to their leaving for their fields of labor. Previous to my going on my Mission and during the time we were making plans to go, I had somewhat of a heavy feeling. Then, the morning of April 25th came and I found myself, along with all, or a lot, of the other Missionaries getting ready to leave on various trains for their mission fields. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, we were met at the Union Station by the District President of the Los Angeles District, Ferris R. Later in the afternoon, I took the Pacific Electric Train out to Belflower where I met Elder Archibald, my new companion.
For the first few days of our stay in Belflower, I got to meet a lot of people who were members of the Branch. We often went with President Visser to Long Beach to Leadership meetings as that was their stake Headquarters. Of course, I was ready in the alloted time and on my way to Downey to work with Elder Ray Fransen. Another interesting experience we had was one Sunday when they were having Stake Conference in the South Los Angeles Stake.
After visiting with him all afternoon and again in the evening, after Conference was over, Theron took us home. In a couple of weeks we called back to see if she had read the book and to pick it up if she was through with it. After he left, we went out to Sister Mossa€™s place to break the news to her and her husband, because Elder Holt also was being transfered to Compton, California, and there would be no missionaries in Downey at all. Saturday morning, October 12, President Hagey, my District President, came to Downey to take me to Los Angeles to report to President MacDonald for my instructions about the new district. While in Los Angeles getting instructions from the President, I got to visit some with the other missionaries at headquarters.
President Hagey and I stayed in Los Angeles that night and the next morning he drove me out to Riverside, which I greatly appreciated, as I did not have a car then.
We soon moved our headquarters of the Mission (District) to a better location, and the Missionaries started coming into the District.
As soon as I had assigned all of the Elders to their various fields of labor, I wrote to all the Branch Presidents in the District to introduce myself. One of the outstanding experiences I had in that District was holding Cottage Meetings in Hemitt. Needless to say, I was a little nervous also with the minister sitting in the back of the living room staring at me. A few months later, after I had been transferred up to the Bakersfield District, I received a letter from President Choate, saying that the Rev.
I remember the Easter Sunrise Service we held in Hemitt that year as a District Conference. With two carloads of missionaries from our district plus one carload from the mission office, for we invited them out to speak at our conference, plus all of the people from over the district, we had a real conference. At the end of the first month I was out in Riverside, which was the day before I was to expect Mr.
About a month later I was down in the Los Angeles area and went out to call on them for a visit. On one of those subsequent visits I remember telling her that I hated to see them wasting their time outside of the Church.


Once, President Durham wrote to me to see if I would come down and speak in the Downey Branch for their Sacrament Meeting. She had originally resigned as pastor of the local United Brethren Church there in Holiday, California when she first decided to join ours; then after backing out of being baptized she went back and accepted the position again.
With this introduction, they all commenced talking at once telling me what a bad thing I was doing, disturbing people who were happy in their own religion until they heard me. The last time I saw her in the mission field was about three months before I was to be released to go home.
While in Riverside, I had the privilege of baptizing a Sister James and her six children into the Church. I have surely been blessed to have the opportunity to meet many of my friends from the mission field. Another interesting experience was when President Blood (Verna€™s next Mission President) called me into his office one day to talk about the Imperial Valley District.
Once, when I had gone down there to take over the office from President Burton, I toured the district and visited all the branches in it. While down there we accompanied one of the local brethren over to Yuma, Arizona to the branch there to speak in Church. I met some wonderful friends down in the Imperial Valley; President Cyril Gardner, and President Lunsford of the El Centro and Brawley Branches. It was here we met and stayed with a wonderful family by the name of Arthur Lee {LNa€™s note: This man, Arthur Lee was a first cousin to Rhoda Jane Perkins Wakefield, being a descendant of Mosiah Hancock}.
At this time of my life my hair was getting pretty thin in front, and in her conversation she turned to Elder Richards and asked him if he was out of high school.
As the month of June was drawing to a close, I received a letter from President Blood transferring me up to organize a new district in Bakersfield, California.
They immediately started to explain to me that a€?Eldera€? was not their name, that it was their title.
Both Elders Grant Fisher and Glen Sorenson turned out to be really good missionaries and both served as District Presidents before their missions were finished.
That evening I held a meeting with the missionaries and gave them their assignments as to where they would labor. After all the elders were assigned and working, I took three Elders with me and drove to Bishop. One day the two Lady Missionaries who were working out in Oildale, came in to the office asking if I would go the next week with them to a Cottage Meeting they had scheduled. We met regularly every week with her in her home and enjoyed the Spirit of the Lord to a very great degree.
It had grown into a habit each week that after our subject matter was completed and we had taught them that part of the Gospel plan we had decided on, that Dorothy would bring in some sort of refreshment such as pie and ice cream.
When I arrived in San Francisco it was raining and nearly evening by the time I found the Mission Home. That night and the next day I spent time with President Ellsworth outlining what he had in mind for me to do. On my way up to San Francisco I received a letter as I was going through Bakersfield, from Clayton M. The last week of my Mission, after having visited all of the districts in the Mission except Reno, Nevada, President Ellsworth called me into his office for a visit. Then, he told me to go to Reno, Nevada, hold the Conference there and instruct the Missionaries.
I was in Reno, Nevada when my release took effect, and with instruction to stop in Salt Lake to be set apart as a Counselor in the Bishopric, it would not allow for me to go back down to Bakersfield to baptize Dr. The next morning, which was Sunday, I went out to go to Church with my sister and brother-in-law, Paul and Helen Zaugg. The first of the week, or Monday morning, I went into the Church Offices to be interviewed and report my mission. I noticed that if I bought a turtleneck and and learned how to play the guitar and went down to Greenwich Village on the weekends, there would be a lot of young women down there. David characterizes it as a€?the nanosecond in recorded time that folk music was a viably commercial enterprise.a€? The show used college students for its studio audiences.
Marshall Rosenberg, their percussionist, was also in that same audience (none of the three had met each other). After he got out of the military, he had written a song called a€?When I Need You Most of All, and approached Lou Levy, the father of a friend who was highly connected in the music business. He says, a€?The band sucked, but I got to meet Robin.a€? Percussionist Marshall Rosenberg was also in Pierce Arrow, so this is where the core of their current act met. As an adult, Harold was the subject of a€?Butterflies Are Free.a€? first a book, then a Broadway play and then a movie. Robin went to the school cafeteria where he encountered George, who gave a proprietary greeting, just as the jukebox started playing a€?Please, Please Me,a€? by the Beatles. Robin figured,in a naive 60's way, that he'd form a band, get a record contract and support the family. Kurt once offered financial help (eventually unneeded) to Robin's younger brother who was having financial difficulties. They were the middle act between Blood, Sweat & Tears and The Allman Brothers, so The Allman Brothers at that point was the warm-up act for Appaloosa.
Warnings of a huge hurricane, perhaps the biggest ever, scared everyone away, and they wound up with no audience. Taylor of the First Council of the Seventy, I was asked if I wanted to go to New Zealand, being as that was where my Mother had been made a convert to the Church and had lived all her growing years until she was about twenty one years old.
Moss got a little tired of their conduct also, for she reached over and slapped one of the women on the arm who was doing most of the talking and said, a€?Shut up!a€? She told them if they would just listen to me I could explain everything. She had a sister who had been at her home a couple of times when we were there teaching them. Button asked me when I entered with Elder Crandall was, a€?If I should decide I wanted to join your church and asked to, would I have to deny all the spiritual experiences I have had?a€? My answer to her was, a€?Our Church was founded on revelation, which in, and of itself, is a highly spiritual experience.a€? That seemed to strike her very pleasantly and that night we started a very congenial, friendly relationship.
Lyle Wynn came in to take my place as District President, and I left along with Elder Sorenson who was transferred with me.
Button: As a young girl she met her husband while in a seminary studying for the ministry of the Methodist Church. Button and her membership in the Church: Each year for two or three years she would lock up her office and go up to Salt Lake to do Temple work and research in genealogy. After they teamed up, they wrote a€?The Heart of the Audience,a€? a song about that concert. The Everly Brothers' a€?Bye, Bye, Lovea€? came on the radio and Robin got so excited that he started turning the wheel side to side, almost taking the family over a cliff. He also wrote his autobiography, To Race the Wind, which was made into a CBS-TV movie in 1980. Marshall joined the band, got David into the band as well and it became the start of Pierce Arrow.
At a 4th of July show opening for Aerosmith, the audience began throwing firecrackers at them.


However, the break in momentum destroyed the band's relationship with the record company causing record promotion and band morale to go downhill. David asked his friend if Robin could do half the set and then they'd do a couple of songs together. This paid extremely well and, begun as a sideline, had started to become their main endeavor. He describes it as a€?Neo-folk, written with tears running down my face, for Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, sung with the help of Judy Collins and Rachele Cappelli and a choir of campers.a€? It's available for download from CD Baby and all proceeds go to the Camp. They were both entering a period in life where the gaps in their responsibilities seemed to offer another chance to work together.
Moss to come out and get me to take me back to baptize them, back in Downey, I received a letter from Mrs. Taking lessons while kids outside were playing ball left him "really torn,a€? he says. I saw all the luminaries of that period, including Billie Holiday.a€? At the same time, the Long Player format or a€?LPa€? with a full a€?albuma€? of songs took prominence over the smaller 45rpm singles everybody used to collect in the 50's. After high school, David attended Brown University, and while there, he was in one of those of student audiences. Levy replied, a€?They've just broken upa€¦ pick one!a€? David picked Mary, and Levy arranged for them to meet.
It was here that a series of auspicious connections started and continued through his life. During his career as a lawyer, Krents worked hard to expand legal protection for the handicapped. Robin told George to knock it off because everyone swore after suffering through that humiliation their first year that they wouldn't engage in this practice. Robin says, a€?My backbone lit up, and I thought, 'This is my music.' That moment of odd juxtaposition became Robin's rock 'n roll epiphany. The orchestra was faculty-organized and contained a number of prestigious a€?funa€? players.
David's daughter had just started college and Robin's son was approaching college-age also.
Circumstances led to the group's dissolution through the 90's, but they stayed in touch and recently started working together again full-time.
However, he was still immersed in classical music, spending more time playing the violin, learning concertos, playing with the orchestra. One was a friend from Andover, a top-notch clarinet player, a€?Dee Deea€? Pei, Dee Dee's father was famous architect, I.M Pei. These guys are alive!a€? [and wanted to stay that way] After they were greeted with obscenities opening for Jerry Garcia, for the following gig they decided to play all their songs quickly in succession to prevent the boo-birds from gaining a foothold. He also co-wrote a€?All Aboard Americaa€? for Amtrak and did jingles for numerous other clients.
Archibald, was transfered into the Mission office, and Elder Lamar Fairbanks came in to replace him.
The next day we went with Brother Lee out into the country to visit a man, a non-member of the Church.
What kept him going was that he discovered that he could play songs from the radio, an activity the teacher a€?highly disapproved of.a€? a€?She called it a€?junk,a€™a€? he recalls, a€?but I didn't care.
We wondered aloud a€?what ifa€? a counterpart had been able to do something similar before he initiated the Iraq War.
Another was John Adams -- an even better clarinetist -- who would become a Putlizer Prize-winning minimalist composer. Once I learned, at 7 or 8 years old, that I could figure out the chords of the songs, then I was hooked. Once, a friend from camp called to invite him to play at a chamber music party at her house in Stamford, Connecticut.
Robin recalled, a€?He was like a lot of other kids at Andover, who were children of very successful people, who could never live up to the expectations of their fathers.
They were asked to perform at Woodstock, but, due to an overly crowded roster, they were dropped via a last minute phone call. After a few shows, David and Robin asked Tom if they could play a couple of their own songs. Robin put his music career on hold, entering a a€?semi-retirement.a€? For the next 13 years, he and David would get together once or twice a year to play at charity events, but that was the extent of Robin's participation.
Once I learned, at 7 or 8 years old, that I couldA  figure out the chords of the songs, then I was hooked.
I wasn't getting a lot of it right, but it was good enough for me.a€? I told him that I wished that I coulda€™ve done that, and he immediately tried to assure me that I still could.
An a€?old fat guya€? who lived next door came over with his clarinet case and opened it and asked if he could sit in. They would never know achievement at that level and thus never have the love and respect of their fathers because they could never be as great. Get off!a€? One particular fan in the back was especially abusive and, finally Robin lost it. She said she didna€™t want to have anything to do with the Church, but as she had a brother in the mission field she wanted to do something for us because of him. Later, he met Peter Yarrow and a€?Paula€? Noel Stookey, got to know them well and wrote songs for them also. They were a€?nicea€? kids and said a€?OK.a€? He played the Mozart Clarinet Quintet and was very good, but would end phrases in an unclassical way, playing the last note a little too forcefully. That worked so well, that Tom said, a€?Why don't the three of you play as my opening act and then play as my band?a€? It was enormous fun and became the set-up for all of Tom's shows.
That worked so well, that Tom said, a€?Why don't the three of you play as my opening act and then play as my band?a€? It was enormous fun and became the set-up forA  all of Tom's shows. Moss came over to the door and took my hand, in their presence and with tears in her eyes told me, in a voice loud enough for them all to hear, how bad she felt for me, a servant of God, being persecuted in her home. She did this for sometime and eventually the same feeling came over her, and she said she knew it was not true. The nice part of it is, he continued, a€?is that any time you learn anything new it gives you that same kick. Button and told her that she should go ahead and have one of the other Elders baptize her and not wait any longer. Get your ass up here and I'll beat the shit out of you!a€? The rest of the crowd waited a few beats and then yelled, a€?Yeah! Moss answered the door, I could see she was all ready to leave the house, so I apologized and said I would run on. They had been through the Salt Lake Temple and had their marriage sealed for time and all eternity.
