Richard Dyer-Bennet #2

Richard Dyer-Bennet (1913-1991) played a key role in the folk music revival of the 1950's and 1960's. He founded his own record label in 1955 in order to maintain artistic control over the sound quality, repertory, and style of his performances. His meticulously cultivated vocal style, high tenor range, and studied delivery of poetic text attracted adoring audiences across North America and Europe. This reissue of the second album released on the Dyer-Bennet label in 1956 presents Richard Dyer-Bennet's interpretive minstrelsy rendered in his signature impeccable style and subtle guitar accompaniment. 20-page booklet that includes lyrics. 34 minutes.
