Album Review

Consisting almost wholly of adaptations of traditional material, Shelby Flint Sings Folk is an average early-'60s folk album in the mold of the earliest releases by Joan Baez and Judy Collins. Flint doesn't have nearly as much power and personality as either of those two stars, though neither is she as sterile as some of the droves of high-voiced female folk singers recording in 1963. Flint accompanies herself on banjo and guitar, with some additional guitar by Howard Heitmeyer and, more unusually, flute by Anthony Beale on a couple of tracks. The song choice, even by the standards of early-'60s folk repertoire, is on the predictable side: "House of the Rising Sun," "Sinner Man," "Black Is the Color," "The Cuckoo," "House Carpenter." It all adds up to an insignificant if reasonably accomplished folk recording. The entire album is available on a Collectors' Choice Music double CD that combines all three of her LPs for the Valiant label onto two discs.

The song also appeared on the first album by labelmates the Cascades. She continued to record for Valiant...
