Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE------------------BURL IVES: THE WAYFARING STRANGER LP.
There is no album ever recorded that represents folk music better then "The Wayfaring Stranger" by Burl Ives. It is a true classic filled with traditional folk tunes. There is also no better choice to use to introduce yourself to or get to know more about folk music then this album.
The songs consist of Burl Ives singing and accompanying himself on the guitar. That is arguably what makes this album so great. No fancy gimmicks or over the top productions. Just Burl, the songs and the microphone.
This isn't like the folk music of Dylan, Peter Paul and Mary, or Joan Baez. These are not social protest songs that helped to inspire a generation to tackle the major issues of the 1960's. This is folk music at its basic roots. In many ways it is like a history album of Americana tracing the path of folk music as it spread through the south and west. As you listen to this album you may find that you remember many of these songs from your childhood.
This is the ORIGINAL COLUMBIA CL 6109 NONBREAKABLE 10" record. The cover has been taped top and bottom due to seam-spliting, and the record has numerous visible scratches under normal light! (It has seen a much playing!) Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. So bid now to own this magnificent, impossible-to-find RECORD COLLECTIBLE.
