Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 1, No. 1)

Fast Folk Musical Magazine debuted in January 1984 as the successor to The CooP folk music magazine. The editorial goal of Fast Folk was to promote the performance of "noncommercial artistic music," also known as American folk music. This collection of includes performances by veteran folk singer Eric Anderson ("The Girls of Denmark") and emerging singer-songwriters Christine Lavin (the witty "Don’t Ever Call Your Sweetheart By His Name") and Suzanne Vega ("Tom's Diner"). Itinerant street performer Baby Gramps contributes "Don't Play No Andrews Sisters," longtime folk singer Jim Glover performs "Rain," and Left Field, formed during the 1981 baseball strike, adds their political song "A Big Mistake" to the mix. A 20-page copy of the magazine accompanies the music.
