Editorial Reviews

In the late 1950s it seemed as though every college in the US was spawning a Folk group, and true to Jasmine's recent release of this period which include: The Limeliters and The Brothers Four, they have now issued The Highwaymen who hail from Connecticut's Wesleyan University. This set showcases the songs: "Big Rock Candy Mountain", "Michael", "Black Eyed Suzie", "The Calton Weaver", "Whiskey In The Jar" and many more. It's easy enough to dismiss The Highwaymen as representatives of a brand of Folk music that has gone out of fashion. Their kind of harmony singing, coupled to traditional songs and ballads, has seldom been written of in the decades since their heyday. However they can easily stand alongside other Folk luminaries such as The Kingston Trio and The Brothers Four and had without a doubt had a major impact on the folk scene of the early 1960s.

The Highwaymen had that monster hit with "Michael Row the Boat Ashore" around 1960. They made four LP's for United Artists and then they were done, the members having scattered to graduate schools or careers. While never as popular as The Kingston Trio, The Brothers Four, The Limeliters, or perhaps even The Chad Mitchell Trio back in the "Folk Revival" era, they were pleasant vocalists and good instrumentalists with generally interesting arrangements of traditional folk music and a few contemporary folk-style. These are the four records, inexpensive now in a two-CD package with minimum liner notes. The discs seem to be transfers from relatively clean records, with only one or two pops, crackles or skips, except for track 19 on disc two. Unfortunately, this is a great song, and it just won't play. I don't think it is worth sending back, since a replacement copy, if one could be found, might have the same problem. I liked all the other groups I mentioned better than these fellows back in the day, but listening to this many tracks from them, I have decided they were pretty darn good. Most of their performances are of innocent, even naive folkish fare, a half-dozen in languages other than English. But there are a lot of fun tracks here other than "Michael."

Do not confuse the folk singers of the sixties featured on this set with the country superstars Cash, Jennings, Nelson and Kristofferson who also recorded and toured using the Highwaymen name. There was in fact a dispute over the use of the name that resulted in a lawsuit being filed, but it was settled out of court when the country superstars offered the folk singers the chance to join them on tour. I think they only did one concert together, but even that much would have rekindled some interest in the music of the earlier Highwaymen.

Many years ago, I reviewed The Best of the Highwaymen, which contained 24 tracks. Presented with the opportunity to buy this double CD, I couldn't resist. Compared to the earlier compilation, the obvious omission is The first time ever I saw your face, but this was came later, on their 1964 album One more time. The other noticeable difference (apart from the quantity of songs) is these four original albums contain plenty of foreign language songs. Obviously, whoever assembled the earlier compilation didn't like those, because none of them were featured there :-)

Among the songs here, you'll still find Michael row the boat ashore (just titled Michael), a number one hit in Britain, America and other countries around the world, along with Cotton fields, originally written by Leadbelly, was a top twenty American hit for the Highwaymen, though others have also charted with this song, including the Beach boys. You'll also find Big rock candy mountain, Cindy oh Cindy, I never will marry (which Linda Ronstadt recorded for her album
