Description

The outstanding singer of the folk revival of the mid 1960s, Ballads and Broadsides was the first LP released by a solo revival folk singer. A dynamic singer of great individuality and integrity, Louis Killen is one of the most widely influential musicians of the folk revival and a key voice of English traditional song. He is a hard-core, unadulterated folksinger whose passionate delivery is matched by a deep and wide-ranging knowledge of the songs and the working people who made them. Born in Gateshead in Co. Durham, he was noted for his love of sea songs, as well as the industrial and rural folk songs of his native North East of England. Released in 1965, Ballads and Broadsides was the first full album by a solo folk singer and was, and still is, hugely influential. A great album full of great performances it was, sadly, to be the only album he recorded for Topic Records as he left Britain within a couple of years for a new life in the USA. His legacy is finally given the recognition it deserves with this remastered re-release of this classic album. Topic Records are proud to reissue this classic recording from their archive as part of the label's 70th anniversary celebrations
