January 2015: I attended Tom Paxton's performance at the Florence (Oregon) Folk Festival on Saturday, January 17 and it was a good one! Sadly he stated that this may be his last tour. Makes me all the more glad that I attended this 'sold out' performance. Here are a few photos I took during the performance.

September 2004: The Outward Bound / Morning Again CD was released on August 2, 2004 and copies are being received by those who ordered it from Amazon. I got mine on August 30. You can order it at Amazon here: Click Here to Order Outward Bound/Morning Again. Rhino Handmade has updated their web page to give details on their limited edition release of The Compleat Tom Paxton (Even Compleater) and it looks like one that Paxton fans won't want to miss! Only 2500 copies are available.

News as of January 29, 2004: Tom Paxton's 2002 CD on Appleseed, 'Looking for the Moon' is a finalist for this year's Grammy Award in the 'Best Contemporary Folk Recording' category. The awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on February 8, so keep your fingers crossed! I have also listed a new album, 'Best of Friends' to be released next month by Tom Paxton, Anne Hills, and Bob Gibson.

Tom Paxton has produced quite a few albums of his own and there are also many albums which contain a track or three by him or which feature his songs recorded by other artists. I don't usually list such albums on these pages but you might be interested to know that he can be heard, along with Anne Hills, on Appleseed's recent 2-CD set by Pete Seeger & Friends, 'Seeds: The Songs of Pete Seeger, Vol. 3,' which coincidentally is a Grammy finalist in the 'Best Traditional Folk Recording' category. Although Paxton is only listed with one song, 'Times A-Getting Hard, Boys', It may still be of interest to some of my readers. Click Here to order Seeds: The Songs of Pete Seeger, Vol. 3 from

NEWS as of Dec. 21, 2002: Tom Paxton has graciously given me permission to include lyrics on these pages so I will be adding same, time permitting. If you don't find the one you are looking for, please email me. At this same time, I am taking the opportunity of replacing all occurrances of 'kramerskorners' with 'mydfz' in various references or links to my web site. The '' name is being deprecated. That means it will still work for an indefinite future time but you should begin using instead and should make sure that you change any shortcuts or favorites that point to any of these pages. Thank you.

This page is a labor of love. I have no business or personal connection with Tom Paxton, his agents, his publishers, nor any other connection. I simply have enjoyed his music for many years. When I found out there was no web site providing any significant information about him and his works, I decided to establish one. Thanks to you, the visitors to these pages, it has become the most popular part of my web site.

There is now an Official Tom Paxton web site! Check it out at It includes information about his tour schedule, a place to sign up for his email newsletter, and even some free mp3 files you can download!

Paxton's agents have a new web site. Their former web site at is no longer valid. Instead you will find them at

Before we get into the meat of this page, a small request: Please do NOT ask me where to you can get a copy of any of these albums. I do not know. I suggest that you try Ebay ( or use your favorite search engine (I recommend and look for the title of the song or album you want or just search for 'used records' (be sure to include the quote signs). A typical search entry might be <'Tom Paxton' 'Outward Bound' sale> (with the quote signs but without the angle brackets. Adding the word, 'sale' to the search helps eliminate pages that are just reviews or other references to the album such as my own pages.) You may also find some songs available on Napster, Gnutella, WinMX, or whatever file sharing systems may succeed them, if any. I am not a record dealer and I regret that our copyright laws do not permit me to make copies of my own albums for you. Please save us both the embarrassment and do not ask. Thank you.

Finally, thanks to Mr. Paxton's agent for an 'official' Tom Paxton Discography. Thanks to Martin Waters [email protected] for his contribution of details for the album 'Ain't That News' and much of the information about British Releases. Thanks also to many of you who have written me providing additional information, and sharing your experiences along with your warmth and affection for Mr. Paxton's music.
