Editorial Reviews

Before this Greenwich Village folk doyen recorded for Prestige, he made a splash with his Smithsonian Folkways LPs. He came to be revered for these kinds of new spins on old blues and jazz classics: Hesitation Blues; Black Mountain Blues; My Baby's So Sweet; Come Back Baby; Winin' Boy; Willie the Weeper 20 tracks!

My first exposure to Dave Van Ronk, although I've known his name for years. Definitely a winner for those interested in roots folk/blues. Fabulous unique and creative guitar rhythms blend perfectly with Van Ronk's rough voice. Mostly obscure songs from the early 1900s learned from friends and off the street - a plus for me. The album includes a sheet of comments about the songs.
My favorite: "Just a Closer Walk with Thee", the old spiritual done as never before.

I admit it. I LOVE Dave Van Ronk's music.... his styling, playing and singing .... I even like what I know about him from the book about him mentioned in the title of this review. I associate him and his music with my own coming-of-age in the early 60's. His music was gritty, tuneful and 'real' in a way that sharply contrasted the neatly produced works of such contemporaries as Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez and The Kingston Trio. His sound spoke to the way I wanted to see myself - and today, at 60, I still listen to it quite a bit and enjoy playing my own renditions of these tunes on both the 6 and 12 string guitar. A necessary addition to any folk music collection!

Excellent late 50s, very early 60s folk blues. You like Dylan? Listen to the guy who helped Bob get his start.

This is a good introduction to Dave Van Ronk's musical legacy. He was an integral apart of the 60's folk revival and inspired many musicians to explore our musical roots. Any serious collector should include him in their musical library.

I have been a fan of DVR for years and haven't had this DVD so I am happy to hear him again, since I don't even have a way to play my old LP's. Anyone who likes real funky, genuine folk music and ingenuity should buy this.
