Product Details

"This item is part of the Folkways (Cook, or Paredon, or Monitor) archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included." This collection reminds us that the ballad's purpose, first and foremost, is to tell a story. These songs narrate tales of ordinary people—hoboes and lovers and sailors—and their extraordinary deeds. From "John Henry" to "Lady Margaret," Pete Seeger's expressive style is ideally communicative.      101      Pretty Polly      Pete Seeger      3:41           102     The Three Butchers     Pete Seeger     2:54          103     John Henry     Pete Seeger     4:34          104     Jay Gould's Daughter     Pete Seeger     2:45          105     The Titanic Disaster     Pete Seeger     3:47          106     Fair Margaret and Sweet William     Pete Seeger     2:56          107     John Hardy     Pete Seeger     3:36          201     The Golden Vanity     Pete Seeger     3:56          202     Gypsy Davy     Pete Seeger     5:03          203     Farmer's Curst Wife     Pete Seeger     2:53          204     Down in Carlisle (In Castyle There Lived a Lady)     Pete Seeger     3:24          205     St. James Hospital     Pete Seeger     2:58          206     Jesse James     Pete Seeger     4:33          207     Barbara Allen     Pete Seeger     2:57
