Compiled from the Jug Bands three Vanguard albums "Unblushing Business", "Jug Band Blues" and See Reverse Side For Details" recorded between 1963 and 1966.
The Jim Kweskin Jug Band formed in the early 1960s in Cambridge, MA. They played a combination of old time folk, jazz and blues tunes with a special emphasis on the material of the jug band of the 1920s. Kweskin was the nominal leader of the band, though Geoff Muldaur was usually heard on lead guitar and vocals. The band also included Bill Keith on banjo, Mel Lyman on harmonica, Fritz Richmond on jug and washtub bass and Richard Greene on fiddle.
The Jug Band featured Maria DAmato, later to become Maria Muldaur when she married fellow band-member Geoff Muldaur.
This is a very accessible collection, play it at any party and watch the smiles! Kweskin's Jug Band doesn't touch some of the more "difficult" traditional subject material (often a problem in these politically correct times) that some might find overly risque, or racist, but it doesn't miss a thing when it comes to the double-entendre, and you'll hear this in tunes like "Borneo" and "Beedle Um Bum." Frankly, the *only* reason this collection doesn't get five stars, is (as I said) it has essentially the same track list as the CD "Greatest Hits" minus four tracks.
