When I started playing in the 60`s, I had barely heard of people like Leadbelly. Koerner, Ray and Glover showed me the blues, I was hooked and I`ve been singing them like they did ever since.
There are several other albums by these guys and by Spider John Koerner alone or with other partners, but for me this is the one. Check out tracks like TITANIC and POOR HOWARD - they are bliss to hear.
His later albums tend to be leaning more towards American Folk/Country material and are also great but for a grounding on the blues revival of the 60`s this is the one!
I saw Spider last night in Hereford- now in his 70`s, still commanding and enthralling his audiences. You could see and hear just how Dylan was influenced by his style of delivery although no one has a guitar style like Spider. Go get it- you won`t be disappointed.

HASH(0x9e6ad4ec) out of 5 stars a most welcome return 30 Jun. 1999
By Jerome Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Much of the music created during the late-50s-to -mid-60s folk revival is dated, some of it downright unlistenable. That's particularly true of many recordings waxed by earnest young whites who tried to take on the blues, which turned out to be a whole lot more complicated than they seemed -- as the current generation of hot-shot white electric-blues players is learning and sometimes, alas, demonstrating. But between 1963 and 1965, when three gifted Minneapolis musicians recorded three albums' worth of country blues and related material for Elektra, they made a music that sounds fresh and inventive even today. The Return of Koerner, Ray, and Glover, the last of these, is in some ways the best of an already splendid lot, a brilliant mix of covers (Lead Belly, Blind Willie McTell, tradition) and originals (e.g., Koerner's characteristically odd, droll "The Boys Was Shootin' It out Last Night"). Nobody then or since has ever sounded like Koerner, Ray, and Glover, who somehow absorbed the African-American folk tradition yet at the same time imprinted a uniquely personal style on it. The results stand up amazingly after more than three decades. This is music for the ages, and Red House deserves our thanks for making it available to us once again.

HASH(0x9ea8b5ac) out of 5 stars time's test stood 14 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Return of Koerner, Ray, and Glover sounds just as great as it did when it was released in 1965, which is saying something. Many -- most, if the truth were told -- folk-revival recordings from the period are embarrassing and unlistenable today, none more so than those by earnest young whites who thought they could take on the blues and win. But three Minneapolis musicians, in three memorable albums from the mid-1960s (Return is the last of them), somehow managed to get inside the blues and related African-American folk styles and reinvent them. Make no mistake: there's as much creation as tradition going on here. Besides lively takes on Lead Belly ("Titanic") and Blind Willie McTell ("Statesboro Blues"), not to mention a terrific version of the 19th-Century outlaw ballad "John Hardy," there is a wealth of original material. Eccentric, odd, distinctive, funny, and moving (sometimes all at once), this is music for the ages. It'll sound good a century from now. Thanks to Red House for bringing these splendid recordings into the CD age.

HASH(0x9e6d8dbc) out of 5 stars Best of the best 4 Mar. 2009
By John Ratliff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I was in high school I listened to the Koerner, Ray and Glover albums over and over. Those guys really opened a whole world of music to me. For one thing, they are really great musicians. I especially like Ray on his 12 string with his great voice. And as others have said, this music stands up amazingly well.

And this album, their third, in my opinion catches them at their peak. Each of the 3 albums is great, but I think they're more accomplished artists as the albums go on. If you don't want to spring for the album, just download "Packin' Trunk" for 99 cents. Then you won't be able to resist buying the whole thing.
