      Description hide

      Houston (1918-1961) was a vital figure in the folk music movement of the 1940s and 1950s. These 29 songs (including two with Woody Guthrie) feature material Cisco learned while working and traveling across the country: cowboy songs, railroad songs, hobo songs, union songs, work songs, protest songs, children's songs, and love songs. Guy Logsdon's notes about Cisco's life provide a rich background and complement this collection. Includes A Better World A Comin', I Ain't Got No Home, and Rambling, Gambling Man. Compiled by Guy Logsdon. "An exhilarating romp through the classic American folk repetoire." —NY Daily News
