Description by

The Folk Song era - surveyed by the Faith orchestra (including a banjo) is a delight, with several songs of the era of the folksingers. Yup, there's a banjo here to help out with a little hoedown in "Darlin' Corey." You'll even hear Bob Dylan's "Blowin' In The Wind." "American Serenade" is a classic Faith album from 1963, with slow, thoughtful treatments of soaring tunes celebrating scenic songs of America, done with LOTS of strings, wordless female chorus, woodwinds, flutes, and exquisite saxophone solos. (Bill Halvorsen)

Product Description:

Originally released on Columbia.
Adapter: Percy Faith.
Liner Note Author: Irving Townsend.
This Percy Faith two-fer combining the albums Great Folk Themes and American Serenade works well on one disc, providing pleasant, easy listening versions of folk and country themes. This is an interesting combination of albums that investigate traditional folk themes, including "Home on the Range," "Sloop John B.," and "Michael Row the Boat," with tunes written by Bob Dylan, Hoyt Axton, and Duke Ellington. These LPs were originally released on Columbia Records and had been out of print until Collectables reissued them in 2002. ~ Al Campbell
