Barbara Dane I Hate the Capitalist System (1973) CD

  • $1799

Excellent collection of political songs about the plight of the working man and woman originally issued on Barbara's own Paredon label in 1973. Songs range from the 30s to the 70s and songs from the repertoire of older singers like Sarah Ogan Gunning (the powerful title song) and Woody Guthrie (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos/ Deportees/ Ludlow Massacre) along with writers from the 60s and 70s like Malvina Reynolds, Jack Warshaw (the fierce Kent State Massacre) and Jane Felczer. There are also a couple of traditional songs, Barbara's rewrite of the 1954 blues by J.B. Hutto Things Are So Slow and her reworking of a song from Vietnamese singer Xuan Hong. The arrangements are as varied as the selection ranging from an acapella vocal to a small band. Set comes with 28 page booklet with detailed notes including information on all the songs as well as lyric transcripts. Although originally issued more than 30 years ago much of what is sung about here is just as true today as it was then.  14 tracks, 52 minutes
"This item is part of the Paredon archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included."
