Joe Glazer 

Collector Records presents Joe Glazer along with the Charlie Byrd Trio in this collection of Songs of Steel—as no series on industrial folklore and folksong in America would be complete without an album dedicated to steelworkers. Glazer opens the album with Woody Guthrie’s hit song “Pittsburgh” and sings of other poignant moments in steel unions’ history, including the gut-wrenching tale of the “Memorial Day Massacre” (Earl Robinson) where ten men were shot and killed by police while peacefully protesting outside a Chicago plant. Extensive liner notes complete the collection.
