Description by OLDIES.com:
Jim Kweskin explored the lighter side of folk with both his Jug Band as well as on his solo ventures. Garden of Joy was originally released by Warner Bros. in 1967 and features Jim with the Jug Band taking on the Duke Ellington standard "Mood Indigo." America was originally released in 1971 (also by Warner Bros.) and includes Kweskin's take on "Okie From Muskogee," which was written by Merle Haggard.
