Subject: RE: Top 20 Folk Songs From 50's & 60's
In the UK in the '50s it would be a toss-up between Rock Island Line and Freight Train I guess, in the 60's the UK groups hadn't yet tired of Wild Rover but the influence of the US groups with songs like If I had a Hammer were taking over.
RtS (but then I was listening mostly to jazz and blues so I could possibly be wrong!)
