Album Notes and Credits
Recorded live at the Newport Folk Festival in 1963. Originally released on Vanguard (79148). Includes original release liner notes by Stacey Williams.
It's always fun when a musical document takes the listener back to a specific place and time. The Newport Folk Festival 1963: The Evening Concerts, Vol. 1 travels back to the height of the Great Folk Scare, when thousands of students made the summer pilgrimage to the most prestigious festival in the country. The big names -- Dylan, Baez, Ian & Sylvia -- all made appearances in 1963, and were joined arm and arm by Mississippi John Hurt, Jack Elliott, Sam Hinton, the Rooftop Singers, and the Freedom Singers. While the Rooftop Singers, with their recent hit "Walk Right In," certainly added a popular element to the festival, the overall layout favors the one singer/one guitar approach to folk music. The other odd group out here is the Freedom Singers, a quartet that specialized in gospel-tinged freedom songs like "Woke Up This Morning." The Newport Folk Festival 1963 reminds listeners of a time when people really believed in the songs they sang and their audiences sang along. The album ends with group singalongs on "Blowin' in the Wind" and "We Shall Overcome," both featuring many more people than are credited. As the thousands of folk fans looked onward, Dylan, Baez, Peter, Paul & Mary, and the Freedom Singers linked arms and sang the anthems of a generation. These moments alone make The Evening Concerts a valuable historical document. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford Jr.
