A vibrant sampler of tracks and artists from the late-'60s Vanguard Records catalog, Folk Hits includes Ian & Sylvia's fine rendition of Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain," Phil Ochs delivering one of his finest songs, "There But for Fortune," Eric Andersen's ornate and poetic "Violets of Dawn," an elegant version by Pete Seeger of his "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?," and Doc Watson's breathtaking guitar picking on "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms," among other gems. ~ Steve Leggett
