Elliot toured with Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and all of the original folk era greats. In 1955, he came to England, and began his recording career there. These recordings effectively jump started the folk music craze in England, introducing the work of artists as diverse as Woody Guthrie and Jimmie Rodgers to European audiences. After a short sojourn back in the United States, Elliott returned to England in 1959 and recorded another classic EP, 'Kid Stuff - Rambling Jack Elliott Sings Children's Songs By Woody Guthrie' as well as the equally well-regarded 'Rambling Jack Elliott Sings Songs ByWoody Guthrie And Jimmie Rodgers'. His backing musicians included the great Alexis Korner.
In addition to the previously issued (and extremely rare) original recordings, this set includes five previously unknown recordings by Elliott and Derroll Adams from 1960.
