>Bentley's Bandstand: Jake and the Rest of the Jewels, A Lick and a Promise
"Dave Van Ronk may always be the Mayor of MacDougal Street, but when it comes to the deputy mayor position, there can be no other candidate than Jake Jacobs. No one epitomizes in gracious splendor the wonders of Greenwich Village more than Jacobs...Jake Jacobs has got enough songs to make the day and night glow, and believe it or not sounds like he's just getting started. He should be made a New York landmark like Central Park and Washington Square, and best of all, he's still right there..." -Bill Bentley
