CD Reviews

Before there was Dylan, Bragg or Thompson, there was MacColl
Emmett Miller | Burton, WA | 09/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here is MacColl unfettered by the sapiness of '60s folk music that sent the likes of Bob Dylan running for the dark side. Though you might not know it, MacColl had a huge influence on Dylan, Billy Bragg, not to mention more traditionally oriented artists like Richard Thompson, Mick Hanley, Andy M. Stewart and Dick Gaughin. Timeless stuff here, fetched from most of MacColl's recordings, making it a representative collection of the many themes of MacColl's career. You will find the best renditions of historical songs as well as radical, labor-politics influenced songs. Of the latter, "Dirty Old Town" is probably the best known."
