Folk Is Not a Four Letter Word

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
Compiled by DJ/Twisted Nerve label founder Andy Votel, Folk Is Not a Four Letter Word -- the third in a series of discs previously spotlighting prog and glam, respectively -- documents the mind-expanding funk-folk of the late '60s and early '70s, a subgenre notable for its dreamy grooves and gentle, nuanced rhythms.
