Sam The Sham & the Pharoahs, Elvis Presley, John Hartford, Lightnin Hopkins, Raphaël Zachille and more.
This week's roots music show is a carnival of 60s music. You won't have heard all of these before, but you may have heard a few. Nina Simone sings Gershwin. Judy Collins sings Woody Guthrie. The Clancys sing "I'll tell my ma". The Incredible String Band add a bit of pyschedelic weirdness. Elvis Presley competes with dance music from the Caribbean. And there's three tracks from my classic album of the week, "Mojo Hand" by Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins.
