Some of the best Tom Paxton track's ever recorded. I have been searching for these songs for many years. Tom Paxton at his very best

This is not a re-issue of the studio recordings on Rambling Boy and the Tom Paxton series of albums and as such it is a disappointment. Tom Paxton is one of the great troubadors of our time and always performs well. His live performances are good but they do not have the production depth of his early studio recordings. This is a fair rendition of some favorite songs and it has some later recordings as well. It could have been better and as such rates only two stars.

Great selection of songs if, like me, you had the LPs and are looking for a reminder of how good the man is and was.

Many of the songs I loved in my youth now on CD - I lost all my vinyl 20 years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tom Paxton's Early Years 9 Aug. 2014
By Derald Glidden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an early Tom Paxton collection (at the Newport Folk Festival, singing with Pete Seeger as high harmony on the chorus, etc ) is of value for any Tom Paxton fan. It doesn't have most of the best of Paxton's songs, for obvious reasons. But if you're a Paxton fan you'll like this CD. And for those of us who have the original Vanguard LPs, buying the CD allows you to share the music with younger folks who not only don't have a record player, but don't know what an LP record is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good compilation, but not great 17 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While Tom Paxton is a talented musician, this selection of songs from his Vanguard albums features some strange choices. Why the compiler included "Ramblin' Boy" and "Lyndon Johnson Told the Nation" (both good songs, but easily available on other CDs) and left off a great song like "Bring Back the Chair" is surprising. There are great songs here, such "White Bones of Allende" and "Anita O.J.", but the collection would have been better served if it hadn't tried to include "greatest hits" originally recorded before Paxton came to Vanguard records.
