Gazette, Vol. 1

Gazette, Vol. 1

Twenty topical songs demonstrate that American folk music is still a living, vital, creative force, and can say as much about life today as it does about the past. Pretty Boy Floyd may be dead and gone, but his ballad still provides commentary on the penal system; likewise, "Forty-Two Kids," about school overcrowding, remains relevant.
