For a superb anthology of an underrated Americana treasure, go "Inside"
2014年2月14日 - (Amazon.com)
This is actually a double recording, including the original Dave Van Ronk recording, "DVR: Folksinger" and "Inside DVR." Both were recording when Van Ronk was at the height of his Greenwich Village fame and influence. Twenty-five tracks are presented on one disk, not a bad deal. The content, however, is what distinguishes this album. I bought it after watching "Inside Llewyn Davis," since that Coen Brothers film is allegedly loosely based on Dave's life. I was curious how faithful the actors of that film were to Dave Van Ronk's vocal style and music. Their fidelity is astounding, but then as I played and re-played this album, I was struck by the beauty, purity and power of Van Ronk's guitar and vocals. Many of the classic tunes I remember from the 60's are on this disc, such as "Cocaine," "You've Been a Good Old Wagon," and "He Was a Friend of Mine." Other classic folk songs which influenced the likes of Baez, early Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary demonstrate why so many people covered Dave's material. My own caveat is that the remastering was done quite a few years ago. I believe better digital sound would be possible now. Do not let that caveat prevent you from becoming acquainted or re-acquainted with a true American folk singer.
The Mayor of Greenwich Village...

In retrospect, Dave Van Ronk has been viewed as a kind of father figure to the up and coming folk singers of the Greenwich Village scene of the early 1960's. (Bob Dylan's autobiography "Chronicles" confirms this, in which Dylan remembers raiding Van Ronk's record collection and crashing on his couch as a newcomer to New York city.) Van Ronk's importance as a historian of music cannot be understated: if he had not done his homework on American folk and blues and turned so many of his acolytes on to what he was listening to, would the scene have been the same? It's hard to say. I agree that Van Ronk was a big influence on other musicians at that time; however, in my opinion it is not said enough that he was also an incredible musician in his own right. This disc consists of two separate albums: "Dave Van Ronk/Folksinger" (which features Van Ronk on guitar and vocals) and "Inside Dave Van Ronk" (which features Van Ronk on vocals, 12-string guitar, dulcimer, and autoharp), both recorded in April 1962. Van Ronk's voice was a Tullamore Dew saturated instrument that was accompanied by his precise guitar fingerpicking, and I love the combination of the two. If you can listen to his version of "Fair and Tender Ladies" without feeling moved then I don't know what to tell you. For a beginner to Dave Van Ronk's music this is a perfect start. These two albums give the listener the opportunity to hear the master plow through some standards in his own style, while winning you over in the process. It's not hard to see why so many went and sought out the original recordings after hearing Van Ronk's inspired versions. In fact, I myself ended up doing the same. Dave Van Ronk was one of a kind, and if you are a fan of this CD I would also recommend his albums "Sunday Street" and "Somebody Else, Not Me".

for all of those older 'hippies' this CD is a must! I grew-up listening to Dave and seeing him 'do his thing' in person many times.........folk clubs with intermissions where cookies and hot chocolate or coffee were the side-lines of the ordinance. His sound on CD is as if he is right in front of the mike, doing his magical lyrics, astonishing acoustic guitar, and swallowing gravel as he belts out his emotion/s. This man left us too soon, as did other artists, and truly, I miss him. But in acquiring this particular CD, I can go back to his days on stage, and remember the smoke-filled-rooms where he would sit upon a chair, strap on the guitar, and let it rip. for him i would say let it rip,would mean reast in peace. Get this CD and you will cherish the memories of Dave Van Ronk!
Its the best collection of performances I have found in years

If One Record Summed Up the Follk Revival's Virtues This Is It
2014年5月23日 - (Amazon.com)
Actually this package is two records, both made in 1961. The first 13 songs are from "Folksinger" and the last 12 from "Inside Dave van Ronk. "Folksinger" is the masterpiece. We all know Pete Seeger was the Dean of American folksingers and "America's tuning fork" but Pete's world of folk music (and it was a world) never fully integrated the jazz and blues traditions. And that's where Dave provided a wonderful corrective. Dave channels the aggression of the roadhouse singers who came to the fore when they were playing in bars without amplification. This is passionate music, played with respect and feeling. Dave went in many places after 1961: he would become a better guitar player, a superb interpretor of singer songwriters (the man was born to sing Joni Mitchell) he would even make a wonderful jazz recording, but this is Dave driving the Village folk revival in 1961. Hear him earn the title of "Mayor of MacDougal Street"
