This collection of ballads, originally compiled in 1981 from unreleased archival materials, presents a wide range of artists from the Folk-Legacy Records catalog. Though all derived the Anglo-American tradition, the ballads on this record are of several origins, including orally-transmitted Child ballads, printed broadsides, and occupational ballads. For those unacquainted with Folk-Legacy Records, this release provides a strong introduction to the label.
