Troubadours Part 4 / Various
(Germany - Import, 3PC)
EU-only three CD collection in fold-out digipak with 152-page booklet (English language), in the one hundred years that Folk music has been recorded in the United States, the tradition has embraced ballads - mostly new, but some transplanted from Europe, political statements, personal introspection, and much more. Now the story is here in this special triple disc collection. The fourth and final volume is even more eclectic, featuring America's best-selling poet, Rod McKuen, as well as old school folkies like Malvina Reynolds, Country Rock pioneers like the Byrds, John Stewart, Nilsson, John Denver, as well as John Hartford's original 'Gentle on My Mind' - the song that changed Country music, Townes Van Zandt's original 'Pancho And Lefty', and Kris Kristofferson's game-changing compositions, 'Me And Bobby McGee' and 'Help Me Make It Through the Night'. This set also includes John Prine, Steve Goodman, Gordon Lightfoot, and Joni Mitchell, artists who have helped to bring the folk tradition into the twenty-first century.
