US - Delaware - Full Moon 50 - 11/11/00
Best of the Vanguard Years
This is a great release
pack-jammed chuck-a-block full of Americana songs - a folk music anthology
of the history of America during the 1900's. Cisco Houston was a troubadour
who along with his buddy Woody Guthrie roamed the States fighting for
environmental awareness, working class rights and peace through their
songs. It was said that Cisco Houston and the early folk movement of the
50's were the nursery where the folk heroes of the 60's like Bob Dylan grew
up, matured and found the fertile ground to spread their message of peace,
justice and equal rights. This CD brings back to life a forgotten folk
singer whose songs speak of the human aspects of the mid-century struggle
for almost all the ideas that we now take for granted. A great singer in a
remarkable collection of songs from Vanguard's 50 series on folk music.
