These 160 songs all come from a time when music was made for the listeners' enjoyment only. At that time, the commercial success played only a small role. Only a few years later, covers of many of these songs became hits in the Pop, Country & Western and Rock 'n' Roll charts. Here, you can listen to the original songs, presented by the stars of their time including Woody Guthrie, Burl Ives, Pete Seeger, the Weavers, the Sons of the Pioneers, the Carter Family and Joan Baez.
