    First heard this on a compilation album "Folksong '65" way back when.

      Groups like this one have performed an invaluable service by preserving and disseminating the music, now that the cultural milieu that spawned it has passed. I avoided concert interpretations in my diary in part because professional singers tend to sanitize the sound. Well, I also was interested in original sources.

      But in this performance you really do hear 3 individual voices and all the extra stuff that a formally trained musician would filter out or clean up.
