Ramblin' Jack Elliott Artist Snapshot:

Born Elliott Adnopoz in Brooklyn, Ramblin' Jack Elliot was a city kid whose dream of becoming a travelling cowboy troubadour actually came true. After leaving home to join a rodeo at age 16, he became an important member of the '50s New York City folk scene, and often performed with Woody Guthrie. Respected for his early role in bringing traditional American music to the urban mainstream, Elliot is also an acknowledged expert on, and tireless interpreter and champion of, Western and cowboy songs.

Product Notes

In terms of song selection, this is, indeed, the essential Ramblin' Jack. Originally released as a two-LP set, this 23-song collection is split into studio and live halves. The studio portion consists of a bracing assortment of traditional tunes that Elliott picked up from his many travels. He was, after all, Woody Guthrie's last road companion, and the highlight of the first dozen tunes is Guthrie's dramatic "1913 Massacre." The last section of the CD was recorded in concert at the Town Hall in New York City. The Ramblin' Jack of 1965 was a versatile, likable performer as adept at essaying old cowboy tunes ("Buffalo Skinners," "Night Herding Song") as then-contemporary folk tunes (protégé Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"). One complaint, though: liner notes explaining this linchpin folkie's role as a bridge between generations of troubadours would make The Essential all the more indispensable. --Steven Stolder
