Notes

Jack grew up in New York City and first became interested in folksongs at age 16. The Weavers’ Carnegie Hall concerts were a huge early influence. By 18 he was at university, playing guitar, banjo autoharp and dulcimer and helping to form the first folk song group there. Summers were spent at open sessions in Greenwich Village bars. Eventually he came to England and joined with Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger’s Critics Group, acting as well as singing and songwriting. Some of that group formed Combine Theatre, wrote songs and plays and became artists in their own right. He followed a career in urban planning and design, while touring clubs.

"This album, recorded in 1978, was not released because after that I married, raised a family and ceased to tour regularly. The old songs have not however been forgotten. Some of mine have been recorded by others and as I write this there is a growing interest, as there was 40 years ago in songs about real people, written and sung outsite the music industry, and now helped to spread by modern technology."
