He was idolized by Bob Dylan- a true original Folk Era hero!H introduced American folk music to England and Europe!Includes 8 previously unissued recordings from the legendary Lansdowne Studio sessions, including duets with Derroll Adams. Rambling Jack Elliott might have been a doctor's son from Brooklyn named Elliott Adnopoz, but he looked and acted the part of the ramblin- gamblin- folk hero. He toured with Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and all of the original folk era greats. In 1955, Jack Elliott came to England, and began his recording career there. These recordings effectively jumpstarted the folk music craze in England, introducing the work of artists as diverse as Woody Guthrie and Jimmie Rodgers to European audiences. After a short sojourn back in the United States, Jack Elliott returned to England in 1959 and recorded another classic EP, 'Kid Stuff - Rambling Jack Elliott Sings Children's Songs ByWoody Guthrie' as well as the equally well-regarded 'Rambling Jack Elliott Sings Songs ByWoody Guthrie And Jimmie Rodgers'. His backing musicians included the great Alexis Korner. In addition to the previously issued (and extremely rare) original recordings, this set includes five previously unknown recordings by Jack Elliott and
Derroll Adams from 1960. Essential folk music- unavailable for FAR too long!
