Avis sur l’album

John Jacob Niles is one of the forgotten folksingers who helped preserve and introduce traditional folk music to others before the Great Folk Scare broke in the late '50s. The songs included on Tradition Years: I Wonder as I Wander, in fact, were recorded on the eve of the revival. Niles is in good voice, but one only has to listen to "Waken, Little Sheperd" to understand why posterity has passed him by: his simple dulcimer accompaniment would satisfy even the most rabid folk purist's idea of tradition, but Niles' high alto is another matter.
