MOJO Presents… Dylan’s Scene (2010)

Mojo Presents: Dylan’s Scene (December, 2010)
…But No Dylan

His name’s on the front and his pic is on both sides of the cover, but there’s no Dylan to be found on the latest free CD from Mojo Magazine. The December issue features a cover story on Bob and this disc, subtitled The Sound Of Greenwich Village, is a decent cross section of the New York folk scene, though… more than anything else, this collection ties together the connecting threads of the 60s blues and folk scenes, whether it was intended to do that or not. Featuring the likes of Joan Baez, Eric Andersen, Pete Seeger, a few names I don’t recognize and others loosely connected to the folk revolution, like John Lee Hooker and Allen Ginsberg. Art included.

JOHN LEE HOOKER – Boom Boom (2:30)
JOAN BAEZ – There But For Fortune (3:09)
ERIC ANDERSEN – Close The Door Lightly When You Go (3:25)
PETE SEEGER – We Shall Overcome (4:37)
KAREN DALTON – Same Old Man (2:40)
NEW LOST CITY RAMBLERS – Tom Dooley (2:49)
MIMI & RICHARD FARINA – Celebration For A Grey Day (3:44)
MARK SPOELSTRA – Sugar Babe, It’s All Over Now (1:56)
DAVE VAN RONK – Hesitation Blues (2:31)
THE FOC’SLE SINGERS – Rio Grande (2:42)
KENNETH PATCHEN – State Of The Nation (2:33)
BUKKA WHITE – Fixin‘ To Die Blues (2:49)
LIGHTNIN‘ HOPKINS – Coffee House Blues (2:09)
THE CLANCY BROTHERS – The Wild Colonial Boy (2:43)
ALLEN GINSBERG – Auto Poesy To Nebraska (9:05)

    Many thanks to all. There's still a lot of work to do though. Thanks Blank Frank for all the help over at And Your Bird Can Swing. It's really appreciated.

    Welcome back!

    Kind of an odd collection, indeed. The one name I totally drew a blank on was The Foc'sle Singers, which a little searching suggests was Paul Clayton, Dave Van Ronk & a couple of others; Amazon lists an out of print LP. Buncha British sea shanties, apparently. There are still people in the UK who wear beards, drink beer, and sing this stuff when not Morrising and suchlike. So this would have been the authentic ersatz folk.

    I drew a blank with that one, too. Thanks for looking it up. On this post-election night here in the States, WE sould use a few more of those beard wearin', beer swillin', bead wearin' type around here.

    From looking at your new banner it must have been a tough fight. I hope you didn't get out of the boat. Nice to have you back!

    Though I may not have commented in the past I have to say: I like what your doing, so keep on doing it. Thanks for all the hard work, I hope you're having fun.

    Thanks so much for all of these MOJO selections. I am actually in the midst of trying to complete my collection in either cd or digital format and your posts were a great help. I was curious or was hoping you might still have more albums in the series you are going to post soon. The few that are still eluding me are as follows (if anyone else has/knows where to find these titles pls. chime in too)…
    Made in Britain 2007, 20 Years of Ryko, Beatlemania! Vol.1&2, Born in the USA Vol.1&2, Soul Riot!, Chili Peppers Jukebox, The Quiet Revolution, (Johnny) Cash Covered, Cigarettes & Alcohol, Best of 2003 and the newest one Roots of Nirvana
