Harry Smith Harry Smiths Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume One Ballads
We really appreciate it! I can't even express how grateful I am, really - didn't notice that there were a Tom Waits Closing Time of '16 posts and thought I might never listen to vol.
This is entrancingly beautiful, and some of the best folk music I've ever heard Man, You got it! Haha thanks so much for your humor your generosity and culture. I feel as though humans are deeply and beautifully experienced when observing there culture:i. This is the magic, power, and gift the species has bequeathed to all existence and such raw early roots such as these folk relics are pure soulfulness!
A million thank you's! Although I have professed to be a lover of all types of music over the years, frankly folk music has never really done much for me. One of my favorite writers, Hunter S. Thompson, is guilty of this misty-eyed memorializing too; he has written about jugband throwdowns he attended at the "hungry i" yes, it was spelled out in lower case on the marquee in Harry Smith Harry Smiths Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume One Ballads Francisco, and about travelling into the outback of Kentucky to hear 'authentic' mountain music.
That might have been fine for him, back then. But I think that few of today's music lovers can relate to or appreciate that real folk sound. But as the decade progressed, folk music got commercialized and bastardized, becoming poppier and thus losing much of its original potency.
However, today, when people think about 'folk music', these are the bands and many others like them that immediately spring Various Jazz Juice Vol 5 mind. In considering these groups to be 'folk' groups, it cheapens the actual genre.
A few years ago, during one of those periodic Dylan revivals that seem to happen every so often, I was watching some TV documentary about Dylan's early years. Van Ronk spoke about the early days of the folk revival in Greenwich Village, where he was a leading light, and his influences in those days, which included the blues Harry Smith Harry Smiths Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume One Ballads Odetta and Cross River Nationale Cross River Nationale recording artists and music associated with Folkways Records where Van Ronk recorded his first folk album in I thought to myself, "Ah - there was something before Dylan," and filed the names "Van Ronk" and "Folkways" away for later.
A few days later, I was over at my buddy Ed's house, sitting around while he played Dylan on his stereo. I mentioned the show I had seen earlier, and asked him if he knew anything about Van Ronk or Folkways. He was unfamiliar with the former, but in answer to the latter part of the question, he reached up onto the bookshelf holding his CDs and came down with a large red square box, which he handed to me. Garth Brooks In Pieces told me that Various Criminale Vol 2 Ossessione source of nearly everything Dylan, Baez, and Charles Manson Poor Old Prisoner Boy of the other '60s folk groups did was in this set, which compiled original blues, folk and country tunes recorded during the Depression Era.
When I reminded Ed of my dislike of folk music, he responded by grabbing one of the set's CDs and putting on "Single Girl, Married Girl" by The Carter Family, a simple song with finger-picked chords and countrified singing, but undoubtedly full of power and heart:. It's another essential, timeless piece of the Americana puzzle, fitting nicely into the Harry Smith Harry Smiths Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume One Ballads picture Smith painted.
