Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 5, No. 3) Live at the Bottom Line 1989

Recorded at the Bottom Line, a popular Greenwich Village music club in the 1970s–1990s, this album drew on two shows from April 1988. A house band of piano, guitar, bass, drums, and violin supports the performers.

As usual, the album features a variety of artists (Christine Lavin, John Gorka, David Massengill, and many more) presenting music in different moods on a wide range of themes (apartheid, Vietnam, capital punishment, and King Tut, among others).

A 24-page facsimile of Fast Folk Musical Magazine is included with the recording.
