Banjo player Derroll Adams quietly influenced every musician he came in contact with during his life, and his hushed, stilled playing (he was an up-picker on the banjo, didn't frail, and certainly wasn't bluegrass) and the handful of songs he wrote all carry a sort of gentle, hard-earned wisdom. He was a friend to some pretty famous people in the nascent beat/folk scene of the early '50s, including Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Will Geer, Cisco Houston, and Odetta. Arlo Guthrie covers what is perhaps Adams' best and most well-known song, the powerfully spare "Portland Town," and the compression and sweep of the minimal lyrics is an exercise in how to write a song and tell a story without wasting a single word or note. Ramblin' Jack Elliott turns in a sturdy version of "The Cuckoo," the type of song he and Adams did so well together as a duo in the late '50s.
