Songs From Revival

A collection of the songs that are highlighted in "Revival: A Folk Music Novel".
        This playlist contains every song mentioned in Revival, except Gordon Bok’s “Frankie On the Sheepscott.” Gordon Bok’s original version is posted below the list.
        I didn’t pick these songs because they were my favorites, though I like nearly all of them, but because they fit situations and characters in Revival. Whenever possible, this playlist offers the version I listened to while writing the book. Americana picker and computer whiz BJ Mansuetti helped find the best tracks, even unearthing the authentic “singer-songwriter” version of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
        If any tracks clash with the Revival music in your imagination, please ignore them. Your imagination is always right about these things. Scott Alarik
