country rock, roots rock and Americana spanning over 40 years, Four Decades of Folk Rock is so
comprehensive that it not only includes the most important
songs of these genres, but also spotlights folk
tracks performed by rock bands, rock songs recorded by folk acts and experiments by both along the way.
Showcasing artists as diverse and influential as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, the Grateful Dead and Fleetwood
Mac, the collection takes in all the changes wrought by time and generations. With highlights from latter day champions like R.E.M., Natalie Merchant, the Indigo Girls,
John Hiatt, and Sarah McLachlan this set conclusively establishes
folk rock as a powerful, enduring form of music.
