In the tradition

These old Folkways Records were very special to those in the New York City music scene that Dylan came upon circa 1962. He writes of meeting Cisco Houston at a party on Fifth Avenue down in the Village. Cisco was a compatriot of and fellow traveler with Woody Gutherie. The real deal. Dylan imagined getting a recording contract with Folkways — never dreamt of recording for Mitch Miller’s Columbia until John Hammond signed him. These Folkways covers are distinctive for their think, heavy cardboard covers. This one includes a nice line drawing by artist Ben Shahn. Shahn did numerous covers in the Fifties and early Sixties for various labels.
