• Burl IVES - The Golden Years Of - The Wayfaring Stranger

At last! a comprehensive collection from Burl Icle Ivanhoe IVES "The Wayfaring Stranger". Burl's abiding love, was folk music. A simple, bearded troubadour performing unsophisticated songs without tricks or embellishments, he single-handedly filled concert halls on both sides of the Atlantic. He toured Britain in 1949 and 1952, and played the Festival Hall in London on his 44th birthday in 1953 in a Coronation Concert, excerpts from which make a fitting finale to this collection. Burl recorded for Asch and Columbia Records but all the titles included here are from his days at Decca, with much of the second disc being taken up with extracts from Bing Crosby's 'Philco' and 'Chesterfield' radio shows. Burl himself was regularly ‘on the air’ with his own ‘Philco’ show at the same time as Crosby.
