Sing Folk Songs

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
For Glenn Yarbrough's second album for Jac Holzman's fledgling Elektra Records, Holzman paired him with folk singer Marilyn Child for 1958's Marilyn Child and Glenn Yarbrough Sing Folk Songs, and sing folk songs is exactly what they do, accompanied by Fred Hellerman on acoustic guitar Erik Darling contributes banjo to three songs as well. The whole set was recorded live and it sounds pretty much like a typical coffee house performance from the early days of the Folk Revival, with traditional material getting the rough edges knocked off until it all shines with a kind of pretty afterglow.

This is pre-Limeliters Yarbrough, but his high, clear, and mannered tenor is intact, and Child's voice matches up well with his, and it's obvious they both know how to work this side of the street. Not much really leaps out, though, except for the lively and spirited "Lilli-I-O," the earnest and lovely "Everywhere I Look This Morning," and the nursery song "Who Killed Cock Robin?," which hints at mysterious political betrayals although Child and Yarbrough render it fairly harmless here. The whole set is pleasant if not exactly stirring. Better things would come for Yarbrough down the road.
