Product Description & Reviews

4CD long box with 56 page booklet. Features 85 tracks covering 4 decades of the acoustic folk revival. Artists include Ewan MacColl, Bert Jansch, Billy Bragg, Sweeney's Men, Davy Graham, Richard Thompson, Martin Carthy, June Tabor, Sandy Denny and many more. These four CDs cover British folk revivals from the 1960s through the 1990s, with guitarist Martin Carthy, singer Maddy Prior, and multithreat Richard Thompson acting as the glue holding the box together. Indeed, nearly everyone who ever passed through Fairport Convention is represented here, though Fairport itself isn't. The '60s disc--when the scene burst with a sense of innocence and discovery not unlike the folk landscape in America at the time--is easily the most compelling, embracing the guitar experimentalism of Davy Graham and Alexis Korner ("3/4 AD"), the energetic Pogues template the Dubliners ("The Rocky Road to Dublin"), and the earnest pop-folk of the Ian Campbell Folk Group (a version of "The Times They Are a-Changin'," released three weeks before Dylan's own). Things get progressively less interesting after that. This set is probably of little interest to anyone except die-hard folkies, but they'll find it indispensable. If nothing else, these Brits are closer to the source than the American traditionalists whose songs and styles are based on those from the Isles. --John Morthland
