I have a special reason for asking.

Wouldn't say he's any kinda vocalist, but we saw him a year and a half ago and enjoyed him enough to buy a cd.

Yes, Glazer does have his points. But as far as style, you can see right through him.

I have several LP's of his, as well as his CD's. For me they are more of a reference item that I use when I am performing/researching labor music. I don't care much for his vocal style.

I like Joe a lot...he is always willing and generous when FSGW asks him to sing for them. He has been our guest on a number of occasions and always has a wealth of material & stories....on HIS subject, of course, but that is to be expected. An intense, but nice, guy!

so...?

While I don't "love" him, I have great respect for him.
A highly dedicated hero of the folk wars.

I think that pdq deserves at least an acknowledging groan....


But yes, I like Joe Glazer's singing, on the one CD of his that I have. He's the best source of authentic union songs that I can think of, and he sings those songs well.

I bought his book about 40 years back. Don't use it much these days.

What skivee said. We owe much to him for his contributions to the working people and the songs he wrote.

Why you ask, Donuel? You may PM me if it is secret.
