Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 5, No. 1) Human Pride

This 1989 release showcases modern folk music in the American Northeast. From Big Jimmy’s brooding spoken word introduction on “Spank the Baby” to the bare boned description of New York’s downtown in the rockabilly anthem “Human Pride” by Paul Rugierro, this record is a outstanding collection of modern folk music. Adding to this exceptional compilation are the liner notes, which include not just lyrics, but also several narratives about the current state of folk music.
