THE BEST OF BROADSIDE 1962-1988: ANTHEMS OF THE AMERICAN UNDERGROUND FROM THE PAGES OF BROADSIDE MAGAZINE was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Album Notes and for Best Historical Album.
In the early 1960s the magazine Broadside was dedicated to publishing the lyrics to and articles about what were then known as protest songs, part of a long tradition in folk. These addressed, among other topics: war, accepted social mores, racism, the environment, social injustice, and the struggles of workers and immigrants. Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Malvina Reynolds and more got their first exposure from Broadside.
BEST OF BROADSIDE documents a non-commercial folk movement (some might call it underground) that addressed the aforementioned topics where popular media did not. The spectrum of styles is broad as American music itself: the deceptively agreeable Phil Ochs, Dylan (known here as "Blind Boy Grunt"), and Janis Ian; the passionate blues-drenched gospel of Reverend Frederick Douglas Kirkpatrick; the raunchy folk-rock of the Fugs (the proto-punk "Kill For Peace"); and the embryonic soul sounds of the Human Condition and Nina Simone. For the sheer scope represented here, BEST OF BROADSIDE is essential for the devotee of American folk music and its part in the tumultuous history of the '60s.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (8/31/00, pp.69-73) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...A grand tribute to a stubborn ideal....Heard next to the greed and plasticity of early-21st-century pop, the conviction and selflessness in these songs sound like a long-dead language..."
Entertainment Weekly (12/1/00, p.98) - "...The straightforward and earnest nature of much of the music only highlights the singers' unflinching courage, focus, and refreshing lack of cynicism..." - Rating: A
CMJ (9/25/00, p.25) - "...Compiles Broadside contributions from many key folk music figures....without the precedent of Broadside, there probably wouldn't have been latter-day content-heavy bands like R.E.M, Beck or Son Volt..."
Mojo (Publisher) (12/00, p.108) - "...An invaluable insight into the mindset of an era and the bit-part players...who helped navigate it."
