CooP - Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 1, No. 7)

The mission of Fast Folk Musical Magazine (1982–1997) was to support folk singing and folksingers in the New York City area. The highlight of this collection of 12 songs is a spot-on version of Bob Dylan’s “Talking World War III Blues” sung by Bob Dylan Imitator #26 and recorded live at the Speakeasy, a Greenwich Village folk music club. Other performances of note are provided by Lucy Kaplansky (“Open All Night”), Willie Nininger (“Yippie-I-O”), and Constance Taylor (“Daddy’s Paddy Wagon,” a young woman’s daydream of being naughty). The recording includes a 32-page issue of the CooP magazine.
