Top 10 Best Folk Recordings
Jay M. Wilson | Baltimore, MD | 06/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This recording belongs on anyone's list of the best folk music recordings ever made, preserving the best work of one of the folk revival's finest from the pioneer days in Boston in the early 60's. The best selections are the Jack Elliot reprisals like Diamond Joe and San Francisco Bay Blues, but Mobile-Texas Line and Nine Pound Hammer are extraordinary. There is not a weak song on the disk. Later seduced by amplification and other sound studio enhancements like Baez, Dylan and many others, Rush never again attained the heights reached in these first two recordings, preserved here on one fabulous and essential disk."

"This is a combination CD made from the original LPs "Got a Mind to Ramble" and "Blues, Songs, Ballads." An excellent example of the blues/folk revival of the early 1960s. The singing, guitar, and washtub bass are great. The only thing that keeps me from giving it five stars is that they left off the gospel classic "Just a Closer Walk with Thee" that was on the original "Got a Mind to Ramble" LP. But, it's still one of the best albums out there, and more than worth the price!"
The seminal urban folk revival album of traditional blues
A. Everett Logan | 08/23/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)
"These two albums came out of the Club 47 period in Cambridge, before Dylan and Phil Ochs and the rest started writing the new stuff. With his easy focused baritone, Tom Rush prefigured the urban warm/cool later perfected by James Taylor and Jackson Browne (two songwriters whose work he was among the first to popularize in "The Circle Game." While Tom Rush stole from everyone, he also did their material better, and his versions of Staggerlee, Cocaine, Sister Kate, San Francisco Bay Blues have stayed in my brain for more than three decades now, overpowering all the other versions. This album and the very-influential-at-the-time "The Circle Game," which also was among the first recordings of Joni Mitchell, are two of the bricks at the foundation of folk-rock."
