Thread Name: Joe Glazer - Ballads for Sectarians
Subject: RE: Joe Glazer - Ballads for Sectarians
This Google Search brings up some information on Songs for Sectarians, but not a whole lot.
All but one song from Ballads is on the Bear Family collection, Songs for Political Action. Here are the songs included:The missing song is an anti-Stalin parody called "Little Joe the Rustler," written by Joe Glazer. Joe Glazer and Bill Friedland recorded Ballads for Sectarians in late 1951 or early 1952.
Chanteyranger, what songs are on Songs Of Citizen CIO? I thought that one was by Tom Glazer and Josh White, but I may be confused.
Speaking of Bill Friedland, see I Wanna Marry a Trotskyite and give me a hand with the tune.
Also be sure to see the Socialist Songbook and this page (click) of information on Joe Glazer and Bill Friedland.
