Troubadours Part 2 / Various
(Germany - Import, 3PC)
EU-only three CD collection in fold-out digipak with 152-page booklet (English language), in the one hundred years that Folk music has been recorded in the United States, the tradition has embraced ballads - mostly new, but some transplanted from Europe, political statements, personal introspection, and much more. Now the story is here in this special triple disc collection. This second set begins with the Folk revival that started in the wake of the Kingston Trio's 'Tom Dooley' and continues through the dawn of the singer/songwriter era. It includes early Folk revival classics like 'Walk Right In', 'Michael', and 'Green, Green'. The second disc begins with Bob Dylan's game-changing classics, 'Blowing in the Wind', 'Don't Think Twice, It's All Right', 'A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall', 'Masters of War', 'Mr. Tambourine Man', and 'The Times They Are A-Changin'. It was the Civil Rights era and the Vietnam era, so the music took on contemporary issues. In Dylan's wake came Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, and many others, all of them represented by their finest work. Content.
