Garbage and Other Songs of Our Time

Garbage and Other Songs of Our Time

Joe Glazer’s musical efforts on behalf of workers and union struggles earned him the nickname “Labor’s Troubadour.” In 1970, he founded Collector Records, primarily to produce records supportive of the struggles of working men and women.

In this recording, Joe sings topical songs from the 1960s and 1970s that are primarily of his own composition and are heavy on humor and satire. The subject matter ranges from civil rights to politics to defense of environmentalism. The Charlie Byrd Trio provides the accompaniment.

The liner notes offer background information and historical context for the songs, biographical information about Glazer, and complete song lyrics.
