I've never seen this album myself. It was reported to me by Wally (firstname.lastname@example.org). He reports it as follows:
I have a title to add to your list. A cassette of a folksong festival on pax records. The year 1986.it has no number but an address on the tape 78 east park place, Hampton N.Y. 11937. It is 34:20 long. I found a copy in Virginia about 10 years ago and have never seen another copy for sale anyplace else. The funny thing about the tape is it's not live at a festival at all. Its a studio recording completely by pax. The tape may be one of a kind. The songs are as follows: [See list below.]
April 18, 2005: Evan Greenberger sent an email to add his knowledge of this mystery tape. He wrote,
I have this tape ("A Folksong Fesitval 1986"). It is not one-of-a-kind, though I suspect very few exist anymore. It was only released on tape, never on cd (or record, as far as I know). I saw mr. paxton perform in concert last night and brought the tape with me, and asked him about it while he was signing autographs. He said that it probably never will be rereleased, which is a pity, since I grew up listening to it and it is one of my favorite tapes. He said that he was inspired to record it by a love of old Burl Ives recordings, which explains the similarity of the tape to Ives.
