• The HIGHWAY MEN - March On - Four Original Stereo Albums

In the late 1950s it seemed as though every college in the US was spawning a folk group, and true to Jasmine's recent releases of this period which include, The Limeliters and The Brothers Four we now bring you, The Highwaymen who hail from Connecticut's Wesleyan University.

This set showcases the songs: 'Big Rock Candy Mountain'; 'Michael'; 'Black Eyed Suzie'; 'The Calton Weaver'; 'Whiskey in the Jar' and many more.

It's easy enough to dismiss the Highwaymen as representatives of a brand of folk music that has gone out of fashion Their kind of harmony singing, coupled to traditional songs and ballads, has seldom been written of in the decades since their heyday. However they can easily stand alongside other folk luminaries such as The Kingston Trio and The Brothers Four and had without a doubt had a major impact on the folk scene of the early 1960s.
