Description

From the early 1940s to the early 1960s - the golden era of the American Folk Revival - New York, and especially Greenwich Village, was at the heart of the action. This release gives the full account of what went on in those exciting times, from Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan and beyond, and many places in between.

The aforementioned are joined by many other key artists who were drawn to the fertile scene, including Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Leadbelly, The Weavers, Josh White and Odetta along with some of the lesser lights who were also influential.

100 tracks over 4 CDs with a 24 page booklet with essay, rare pictures and discographical information.

A perfect primer for anyone interested in this very important time in the history of popular music.
