Thankfully still in print and available on CD is this absolutely classic folk revival album, recorded at the famous Newport Folk Festival in the years around 1960, featuring a Who's-Who of top American performers, most of them giving some of the best performances of their career. In adddition to its high excellence as music, this album is of major importance as a document in social history: it is a perfect capture of the energy, hope, and idealism of an America that none of us knew was about to turn into a nightmare.

For many, a major attraction of the disc will be Robert Wilkins's long, polished version of Prodigal Son, later covered by the Stones, but for me, equally memorable are the two Rev. Gary Davis performances, including Samson and Delilah, later covered by the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker's sweetly coy Candy Man, Jesse Fuller's San Francisco Bay Blues (he's introduced on stage by Ramblin Jack Elliott,) Dav Van Ronk's vigorous That Will Never Happen No More, which makes you feel like you are right in a Greenwich Village folk club, and above all, Brownie McGhee Sonny Terry's Key To The Highway, surely the most purely jubilant blues ever recorded. These songs were recorded live at the festival with the ca. 1960 technology available, so production values aren't high, but it hardly makes a difference: this album should be in the collection of anyone who likes American folk music, and the many originals it offers of songs later covered (Amazon Review)
