Liner Note Author: Tom Paxton.
Never flashy, Tom Paxton's majesty has always been in uncovering the sad, simple beauty in life. OUTWARD BOUND came out in 1966, at the height of the folk revival, and is a perfect testament to the singer-songwriter's knack for the softly brilliant. It opens with a Phil Ochs-esque tale of longing and wandering, "Leaving London," and flits between traditional folk and his own firmly revival path, weaving the two into his own tempered narrative. The album closes with a genuine classic, the elegiac sea-shanty-cum-renaissance-ballad title track, an arching, aching song that captures the easy, gentle genius of Paxton, an unadorned yet affecting troubadour.
