Blitzstein: Penny Candy

Marc Blitzstein’s No For An Answer will be featured on the Nov. 19 NYFOS concert at Merkin Hall. Steve Blier and I had our very first collaboration at Tully Hall in a Blitzstein celebration about 35 years ago. It cemented my friendship with Steve, and helped us see a lot of things about songs concerts in a different light. Some years later Steve was able to make a beautiful recording of many of Blitzstein’s best songs. One of my favorites is “Penny Candy”. It comes from No For An Answer. Here is the amazing and characterful William Sharp with Steve Blier at the piano.
