Various: The Greenwich Village Folk Scene: Original Album Series

Album Review

Everything but the Dylan: beatnik roots and revolutionary inspiration in equal measure.

Five albums from the 1964/1965 Elektra catalogue (specifically The Even Dozen Jug Band and The Blues Project’s eponymous debuts, Phil Ochs’ I Ain’t Marching Any More, Fred Neil’s Bleecker & MacDougal and Tom Paxton’s Ain’t That The News) with original vinyl LP packaging, are faithfully reproduced here on CDs, in a slipcover. You might need a magnifying glass to read the sleevenotes on the miniaturised covers, but the content sings for itself and conjures up the essence and excitement of musical revolutions taking place in a faraway land.
