Subject: RE: New Dave Van Ronk collection
You have long been one of my "heroes" Joe:>)

Haven't listened to all of the samples yet, but from what I have listened to, quality varies, both of the recording/production values and of DVR's performances that were recorded. My first and incomplete impression is this collection represents a significant historical anthology of previously unreleased recordings, including a significant amount of dialog and introduction of interest. In terms of best or good recordings musically of his work, your mileage will vary considerably.
