Dave Van Ronk Sings Ballads, Blues And A Spiritual on 180g Import LP

"Not infrequently I am taken to task for the manner in which I approach my material," folk singer and guitar player Dave Van Ronk (1936-2002) wrote in the liner notes to Ballads, Blues, and a Spiritual. A white New Yorker singing traditional Southern black songs, he distinguished himself from others who adopted this repertoire by imitating the way he heard black musicians perform. "Although I can appreciate the ‘white approach’ to Negro folk songs and enjoy the work of many of its adherents, I still reserve the right to sing these songs in the style to which I am accustomed, partly because of habit, and partly, I confess, because I feel that my way is the ‘right way’." Originally released in 1959 on Folkways, Ballads, Blues, and a Spiritual was Van Ronk’s first record. The 14-song set features the tracks "If You Leave Me Pretty Momma," "Backwater Blues," "K.C. Moan," "How Long," and "John Henry" among others. Liner notes include photos, lyrics, song histories, and an introduction by Van Ronk.
