  • Credits

    Not only was Maynard Solomon's Vanguard Records one of the major folk labels of the '60s (having the prescience to pick up Joan Baez early on, and then recording the cream of the singer/songwriters thereafter), it also had the rights to record and release material from the Newport Folk Festival, giving it access to several artists who were not signed to the label. As a result, this double-packet compilation features songs by nearly every major folk figure of the decade, from the Weavers to Jos Feliciano, with Vanguard artists such as Buffy Sainte-Marie, Eric Andersen, and Odetta sharing space with Elektra's Phil Ochs and Judy Collins, and Columbia's Bob Dylan. Listen to this one record and you'll know what the '60s folk revival sounded like. ~ William Ruhlmann
