Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 5, No. 8) Detours

Begun in 1982, Fast Folk Musical Magazine served as an outlet for the work of folksingers and songwriters in the New York City area. “Detours” is a collection of 16 performances by established and emerging singer-songwriters. Newcomer Kelly Flint (“Drive All Night”) opens the album; songs by Fast Folk regulars Rod MacDonald (“Routine Day in Paradise”) and John Gorka (“Temporary Road”) are interspersed with poems and spoken word from Big Jimmy (“The HUGE Gray Blob”), Professor Louie (“On My Block”), and David Cantor (“Dime Store Nickel”). Emerging performers John Goldman (“All My Girlfriends Are Brain Dead”), Michael Jerling (“When the Country Moved to Town”), and Milo Binder (“Irregular Heart”) help to round out the collection. A 21-page facsimile of the magazine is included.
