johnross Lyr Add: Mary Hamilton (Hally Wood) (23) RE: Hally Wood's 'Mary Hamilton' 29 Feb 04


Hally Wood also shows up on a forgettable LP called "Goin' Down to Town" by The Skifflers (Epic LC 3391), later re-issued on Columbia as "Hootenanny" (Columbia HL-7307). The other Skifflers are identified on the label as Lee Charles, Libby Knight and Milt Okun. Hally Wood wrote the liner notes, and the songs are all more or less traditional.

Based on the catalog number and the cover art, I'm guessing it was issued around 1962, give or take a couple of years. It was probably an effort by somebody at Epic to cash in on the popularity of Kingston Trio-like trios and quartets, before the market for real folk music emerged. They probably decided to do a folk quartet album, and then went out and hired the singers for the session.

For all that, it's a pleasant enough record.
