Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Mary Katherine Aldin.

Recording information: Indiana University, Bloomington (10/20/1964).

Dave Van Ronk was one of the key figures in the Greenwich Village folk music community in the '60s, but he was an artist who refused to be tied down by generic boundaries. Van Ronk was one of the best blues singers to emerge from the folk movement (heavily influenced by his mentor and friend the Rev. Gary Davis), a skilled guitar player with a background in early jazz, and a performer whose repertoire ran from protest songs to ragtime. Hear Me Howl: Live 1964 is a rare concert recording that captures the sound of Dave Van Ronk demonstrating the many facets of his talent in front of an audience. Selections include "He Was a Friend of Mine," "Candy Man," "Green Rocky Road," "Cocaine Blues," "You've Been a Good Old Wagon," "God Bless the Child," and many more. ~ Mark Deming
