 Notes & Reviews
Before she became a key figure in England's folk revival (and well before her noted role in the folk-rock boom), Collins recorded this debut for Folkways at age 23. This is sparse, fragile folk at it's purest (just vocals, guitar and banjo): Sweet England; the Cuckoo; Blackbirds and Thrushes; the Bonny Irish Boy; the Cherry Tree Carol; Polly Vaughan; Hares on the Mountain, and more!
