Van Ronk, Dave - Dave Van Ronk Folksinger Dave Van Ronk Folksinger
Folk New - LP PRST 7527 Prestige
Sealed 1967 Stereo Original Recorded By Rudy Van Gelder. Regarded By Many Die-Hard Folkys As His Finest Album. His Deceptively Simplistic Delivery Acts As Both A Gateway To, As Well As An Archetypal Interpreter Of, A Roots-Based Folk Music That Is Steeped In The American Experience. What Is Most Immediately Striking About Van Ronk's Approach Is The Overwhelming Solitude Inherent Within His Delivery. The Unadorned Humanity Is Expressed Practically By Default. A Five Star Album - Top Recommendation.... more details

Van Ronk, Dave - No Dirty Names No Dirty Names
Folk New - LP FTS 3009 Verve
Sealed, Rare 1966 Stereo Original. “While This Is Certainly Among The More Obscure Of Dave Van Ronk's Early Lps (None Of Which Were Exactly Big Sellers), It's One Of The Better Ones. It's Not Radically Different From Most Of The Folk-Blues Albums He Made In His Early Career. But There's A Little More Variety To The Arrangements And Repertoire Than Usual, With Just As Much Of Van Ronk's Growling Gruff Voice As Always. For One Thing, It's Not Solely Van Ronk And His Acoustic Guitar; There's Also Some Acoustic Guitar By Dave Woods And, More Surprisingly, Bass By Chuck Israels, A Member Of The Bill Evans Trio For Much Of The '60s. Van Ronk's Tendency Toward Hokey Good-Time Vaudeville-Ragtime Is Kept In Check, Resulting In A Moodier And More Varied Outing Than Many Others In His Catalog. While Many Of The 13 Tracks Are The Kinds Of Folk And Blues Standards You Might Expect In A Van Ronk Set (Like "One Meatball" And "Statesboro Blues"), There's Also A Pretty Good Five-Minute Cover Of Brecht-Weill's "Alabama Song." Stranger Is "Zen Koans Gonna Rise Again," Featuring A Ghostly Organ By Barry Kornfeld (Though None Of The Other Songs Feature Organ). For Collectors, Though, The Major Alarm Bells Are Rung By The Plaintive If Unexceptional "The Old Man." For It's An Early Bob Dylan Song That Was Never Covered By Anyone Else, And Made Its First Appearance On This Album, Though Van Ronk Re-Recorded It For Subsequent Releases Many Years Later (Dylan's Own Version, An Outtake From His First Album, Finally Surfaced On The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3, Where It Was Titled "Man On The Street"). And You've Got To Be Aware Of Dylan's Authorial Involvement Beforehand To Recognize The Song As One Of His Works, Since No Writing Credits Are Given For The Tracks On The Back Cover (Though They're On The Inner Label).” Richie Unterberger, AMG.... more details

Van Ronk, Dave - Dave Van Ronk And The Hudson Dusters Dave Van Ronk And The Hudson Dusters
Folk New - LP FTS 3041 Verve
Factory Sealed 1967 Stereo Original. “The Sound On This Album Is Reminiscent Of The New York Folk-Rock Band The Blues Project. It Begins With A Ragged Rendition Of The Hollywood Argyles' "Alley Oop" And Ranges From That Doo Wop Chestnut To Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning And Clouds" To "Romping Through The Swamp." More Familiar Van Ronk Territory Is Covered, Also With Reprise Performances Of "Dink's Song" And "Cocaine." Dave Van Ronk Always Brings His Enthusiastic Roar To His Material And Makes It His Own. His Rendition Of "Swing On A Star" Is But One Example. The Hudson Dusters Seem To Be A Combination Electric Jugband, Folk Orchestra And Bubblegum Band, As On "Mr. Middle." A Strange Collection.” Richard Meyer, AMG.... more details
 
Van Ronk, Dave - Going Back To Brooklyn Going Back To Brooklyn
Pop Used - LP RK 1916 Reckless
1985 Original On The Reckless Label Out Of Cambridge, MA. Appears Unplayed. Only Copy We Have Ever Seen Of This Rarity. The Late Dave Van Ronk Is Not A Household Name To Many Folk Or Blues Devotees, But From The Late Fifties Through The Early Seventies, He Was A Major Influence On Many Great Musicians/Singer Songwriters Including Dylan, And Joni Mitchell. If Dave Was Alive Today, He Would Be Marking 50 Years Of His Recording Career. Dave Was Not A Prolific Songwriter. Of His 30 Plus Albums, "Going Back To Brooklyn", Was The Only One Devoted Exclusively To His Original Songs. While He May Not Have Written Much, The Songs Here Are A Testament To Dave's Great Talents As A Guitarist And Songwriter. He Was Not Primarily Noted As A Blues Artist, And During The Early Sixties' Folk Revival Period In Areas Like NYC's Greenwich Village, He Would Have Been Associated More With American And European Folk Balladic Music. Joni Mitchell Has Said That His Cover Of Her "Both Sides Now" Was The Finest Version Ever. During His Long Career, He Was Eclectic In The Music He Played. Jazz, Swing, Country, And Ragtime Tunes Were Always Part Of His Musical Repertoire. He Was Very Strongly Involved With Radical Left-Wing Political Causes, And Some Of The Songs On " Going Back To Brooklyn" Reflect Some Of His Political Ideals. Listen To "Luang Prabang", Which He Sings In An English Medieval Type Balladic Style. Serious Songs, Yes, But Also Well Written And Enjoyable Tunes, And Not All Without Humour. Listen To The Humorous And Bawdy Lyrics Of "The Whores Of San Pedro". Try And Find His 1988 "Hesitation Blues", And His 1982 "Your Basic Dave Van Ronk" Albums.... more details
