The Early Years, 1958-1962

The Early Years, 1958-1962

The lively, good humored Ramblers introduced generations to old-time string band music and influenced artists as diverse as Doc Watson and the Holy Modal Rounders. This collection of 26 songs and instrumentals highlights the virtuosity and splendid variety of 12 Folkways albums recorded by the original group (John Cohen, Tom Paley, and Mike Seeger). "...[A]musing in spots, touching in others and captivating all the way through..." — The Fresno Bee
