Synopsis

Album Description
ED McCURDY, aside from being one of the early folk movement?s greatest progenitors - has the distinction of being one of the most recorded of all American folksingers, yet today most of his great recordings are sadly out-of-print. Ed McCurdy paved the way for many of today?s modern folk / country / Americana artists and was once considered America?s premier folk balladeer. His albums of cowboy songs and children?s songs were staples of life in 1950?s America and found their way into America?s school systems and libraries all across the land. Ed was one of the first responsible for bringing folk music to television and was a frequent performer on children?s shows and musical specials. His original composition "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream" was one of the key anthems of the Anti-War movement. This classic album, "A Ballad Singer?s Choice" is one of the greatest examples of pure folksong sung by a master. Recorded in 1956, this release marks the first CD edition of this wonderful cornerstone of the folk movement. TIMELESS MUSIC LASTS FOREVER!
