Troubadours of British Folk, Vol. 1: Unearthing the Tradition

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Rhino's Troubadours of British Folk series, encompassing three volumes, four decades, 49 songs, and almost as many performers, is a model genre retrospective. For those who want a representative collection of the style's highlights, it covers virtually all of the major performers and innovators of British folk, represented by their best-known and usually best songs. For those who want an introduction/guide to the form, it's equally useful, serving as an excellent foundation to build upon if you're motivated to seek out more albums by these performers after an initial taste. Volume One covers the mid-'50s to the early '70s, encompassing skiffle Lonnie Donegan, elder ...

Rhino's Troubadours of British Folk series, encompassing three volumes, four decades, 49 songs, and almost as many performers, is a model genre retrospective. For those who want a representative collection of the style's highlights, it covers virtually all of the major performers and innovators of British folk, represented by their best-known and usually best songs. For those who want an introduction/guide to the form, it's equally useful, serving as an excellent foundation to build upon if you're motivated to seek out more albums by these performers after an initial taste. Volume One covers the mid-'50s to the early '70s, encompassing skiffle Lonnie Donegan, elder statespersons Ewan MacColl, virtuoso guitarists Davy Graham, Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, traditional singers Jean Redpath, Shirley & Dolly Collins, singer-songwriters Donovan, and early efforts by the major players of British folk-rock Fairport Convention, Pentangle, The Incredible String Band, Steeleye Span. Then there are names which are virtually unknown these days in the States, like the Young Tradition, Anne Briggs, and Wizz Jones. Along with some expected classics Fairport's "Fotheringay," Donegan's "Rock Island Line," Jansch's "Needle of Death" are some rare coveted treasures, like MacColl's "Dirty Old Town" eventually covered by The Pogues and Graham's "Angi" popularized by Simon & Garfunkel. The liner notes, with quotes from many of the artists and extensive commentary, are great, as they are for each volume of the series.
