Gibson & Camp at the Gate of Horn

Elektra, 1961

At the urging of manager Albert Grossman, Bob Gibson & Bob Camp (later Hamilton Camp) formed a
duo which created a phenomenal sound and excitement unparalleled in the annals folk music.

Gibson & Camp at the Gate of Horn

  was taped in Chicago at the 100-seat Gate of Horn; this album turned out to be one of the greatest live recordings of all time - so much so that it became folk's first gold record. Their rollicking arrangements and exceptional harmonies inspired numerous up-and-coming acts, including Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver and even the Beatles. Shel Silverstein's liner notes, Gibson observed, probably sold as many albums as the music.
