I have mixed feelings about this because I prefer multi-artist compilations to have a lot of different artists represented by one or two songs each rather than a few artists represented by a lot of songs each. That said, maybe focusing on a few star names was the only way that a folk compilation in this series of budget compilations would be viable, Given all that, this set still justifies a 5-star rating. As with the other compilations in the series, no performance copyright is payable under European law because of the age of the recordings.

There are eight tracks here by Peter, Paul and Mary, seven of them coming from their debut album. Their most recent track here is Puff the magic dragon, which was a big hit in America during 1963, but maybe it is old enough to be copyright-expired before the law changed. In any case, the eight Paul and Mary tracks all feature familiar songs. From the track listing, I didn't recognize It's raining, but I soon rembered when I heard it :-)

There are seven tracks each by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Bob Gibson, five each by Elizabeth Cotton (recorded when she was old) and Pete Seeger (three of them live). Four tracks by Dave Fredrickson include Farewell fair ladies, which I remewmber as Goodbye Od Paint. Odetta is represented by three tracks including her classic live duet with Harry Belafonte, There's a hole in my bucket.

Dave Van Ronk is here with four tracks, but they aren't songs I was already familiar with. Doc Watson also gets four, of which I've heard Peg and Awl, not necessarily by him. The only Rooftop Singers track, Walk right in, is very famous. Jean Ritchie is here with a live track and a duet with Paul Clayton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value. 24 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Casual purchase when looking at typical folk albums. Great value for 75 tracks. Lots of great well-known tracks and one or two questionable but more than worth the money.

Must admit for years, even though years ago I did attend a 'Folk-Music-Concert, I would
have had difficulty in defining it, for me it seemed a cross between 'Country and Traditional,
I suppose giving it some consideration the music stems from way back when Minstrels roamed
from town to town entertaining folk with songs of the day.
This album contains many many well known artists performing songs from down the ages,
with numbers from the likes of 'Bob Dylan' 'Pete Seeger' 'Peter Paul and Mary' 'Judy Collins'
'Joan Baez' and 'Odetta' among the contributors.
Some of the well known songs to enjoy on-board include .....on disc one.....'Bob Dylan' --House
of the Rising Sun' (A 60'S HIT FOR 'THE ANIMALS) ......'Pete Seeger' --'Molly Malone' ......
'Judy Collins' --'Golden Apples of the Sun' ......'Peter, Paul and Mary' --'500 Miles' (A HIT FOR
THE FOLK-GROUP)......'Dave Fredrickson' --'Farewell Fair Ladies'.......and.......'Odetta with
Harry Belafonte' --'There's a Hole in My Bucket' (an old-favourite)......just some of the diverse
material to enjoy on disc one......on disc two......'Peter Paul and Mary' --'Puff the Magic Dragon'
(ANOTHER HIT FOR THE TRIO)......'Bob Gibson' --'Yes I See'.......'Doc Wilson' --'Peg and Awl'
'Joan Baaz' --'Banks of The Ohio' ......'Pete Seeger' --'On Top of Old Smokey' (an old favourite)
'Odetta' --'Jack of Diamonds' .....and......'Joan Baaz' --'All ,My Trials' .......just a few of the numbers
included on disc two......on disc three......'Peter, Paul and Mary' --'If I Had a Hammer' (AlSO A HIT
FOR 'TRINI LOPEZ').......'The New Cristy Minstrels' --'Big Rock Candy Mountain' .....'Pete Seeger'
--'We Will Overcome' ......'Tom Paley' --'Shady Grove' ......

5.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Really Go Wrong 3 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
With folk music currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity this is a good triple CD album to have, reminding us of what has already gone in the past when folk was popular before. There is just over 3 ½ hours of listening pleasure in total here, and although you may know some of the songs on these albums it is unlikely that you will know them all. I think my introduction to folk music was when my little sister and I had to hear my dad strumming his guitar and warbling ‘Puff the Magic Dragon’, which is probably considered as child abuse today. Thankfully that never put me off for life.

The good thing about folk is that it takes in so much, you have traditional and contemporary and this can take in songs that are political and activist motivated, from music that could fall into blues and country, gospel and spiritual genres as well. It is probably this broad range that means that it is so popular once again. So you have music here that is slow as well as faster tracks and spiritual as well as more pop type music.

With seventy five tracks here with songs by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, and Peter, Paul and Mary, and so many others, you can’t really go wrong with this triple album. I don’t know how popular it ever was but I must admit that this does have a particular favourite of mine on here, and that is ‘Willie The Weeper’, by Dave Van Ronk. Ideal to play anytime this triple CD album is well worth getting, although it does mainly centre on a few stars in the main, and then some others.
