I bought this last week and have had it in my DVD player since. I love their harmony and some of the tracks are very familiar.

Very familiar with the Gordon Lightfoot songs Elvis also covered. I like the few songs I have heard from them.

Ah-h-h, Great songs! Forgot about Stewball!! You have hours of delightful listening! If I had this, I would listen to it over and over and over!! :D :D :D

Still waiting for my Walk a Mile in my Shoes, though. I have had SO much trouble getting this one!!!

generically, Elvis Folk could be anything acoustic
and from the early 60s - even more legit for folk labeling

"Wild In The Country" "In My Way" - 2 that spring to mind.


FOLK is a pleasant strumming style of a bygone era and I do enjoy Lightfoot and Croce and other ealy 70s purveyors.

as an aside, on this topic,
But Folk has no place in the Rock-n-Roll Hall Of Fame.

Folk was in its intial conception: anti-rock; a snobbish college crowd alternative to that "teen pimple music" as Folkees called Rock & Pop.

RRHOF ever inducting Kingston Trio and Pete, Paul & Mary would be a violation of what differentiates Rock Music and Folk Music

Folk music is a LOT more than that. Why mislead with your ignorance?
