AUDIO: Jesse Winchester (1976)

John Tobler, Rock's Backpages, June 1976

The songwriter-in-exile talks about his religious background; his stay in Munich; getting his draft notice and moving to Montreal; meeting Robbie Robertson and signing to Ampex; being managed by Albert Grossman and joining Bearsville; his recorded output; favourite covers of his songs; being supported by Joan Baez, and still not being allowed back into the USA.
