Gazette, Vol. 2

Gazette, Vol. 2

In the liner notes to this second volume of topical songs, Irwin Silber writes, "Traditional folk song, in addition to its inherent artistic worth and emotion-fulfilling qualities, has always served as the ‘living newspaper' of history." This "living newspaper" includes songs about the Centralia, Illinois mine disaster and the destruction of Hiroshima.
