Dave Van Ronk Sings

Dave Van Ronk Sings

Born in Brooklyn in 1936, Dave Van Ronk was Bob Dylan's "first New York guru," writes Dylan's biographer Robert Shelton. "Dave Van Ronk was the musical mayor of MacDougal Street," Shelton continues, "and...a walking museum of the blues." This album features fifteen songs, including a parody of "Nearer My God to Thee": "Georgie and the IRT."
