    Part of Ace Records' excellent ongoing series of various artist anthologies covering various musical styles of the 20th century, THE GOLDEN AGE OF AMERICAN POPULAR SONG: THE FOLK HITS also functions as a concise introduction to the collegiate folk revival of the 1950s and '60s. The collection's starting point is songs that hit the Billboard charts, including such popular favorites as the Rooftop Singers' "Walk Right In," the New Christy Minstrels' "Green Green," and the Kingston Trio's "Tom Dooley." Where some anthologies boost their hipster cred through rarities and obscure tracks, this fine set is more geared for newcomers to the style.
