About this item

Although now established as one of the prime figures in the US folk revival, in 1964 Tom Paxton was just starting out on his recording career. Yet his debut remains one of the finest works he's ever recorded, carrying a rare power and sense of purpose. Whilst influenced by Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie and the like, it was Paxton that captured the mood of the day with a string of classic compositions that still have the timeless ability to reach out and move the listener. These Elektra remasters are a wonderful reminder of a respected performer in the virility of his youth.
