Overview

Wally Whyton's albums It's Me Mum and Leave Them a Flower appeared in 1968 and 1969 respectively, and this import CD collects both albums on one CD (although, as the title indicates, one song was omitted from Leave Them a Flower to fit the albums on one disc). These tracks find Whyton's dedication to American folk music keeping with the times on a set of protest songs, folk chestnuts and folk-rock covers. He tackles Bob Dylan, John Denver, Tom Paxton, Woody Guthrie and the like, rendering all with that chunky 12-string guitar sound and some surprisingly "modern" arrangements. Some of Whyton's self-penned protest numbers seem heavy-handed, but so did much of the protest folk of the period. Whyton's song "Leave Them a Flower" is said to be an international conservation anthem, but mostly this package is directed toward Brits who remember Whyton's Country Meets Folk radio program and television appearances, and of course his tenure in the Vipers Skiffle Group.
