Product Description & Reviews

Without a doubt, this is Dave's greatest single album. Every song perfectly displays one or another facet of his work. He has done a lot since, but this 1976 album was the perfect summary of his basic artistic approach. It is also, incidentally, one of the few genuine masterpieces to come out of the folk-blues revival. --Elijah Wald, from his liner notes No matter how good the music shop is, you can't buy the instrument that Dave Van Ronk plays. It's a voice. Van Ronk has what you might call a vintage throat, a rare antique that has collected every story that has passed his way in decades of folk singing. It is a scratched, raw voice--memorable, exciting, and suffused with the weight of experience. In this 1976 reissue, Van Ronk uses a simple acoustic-guitar-and-voice dynamic to sketch out the wisdom and world-weariness he found in traditional tunes such as "Jesus Met the Woman at the Well" and "Down South Blues." His ragtime guitar renditions of Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" and Jelly Roll Morton's "The Pearls" are brilliant reappraisals of enduring songs. His cover of Joni Mitchell's "That Song About the Midway" slowly courses through the labyrinth of a sad, wrecked life. This is a striking album, balanced with dark blues and sly humor. --Lois Maffeo
