Both this and the America cd cull material an old two lp
set titled America on the Joker label, previously released
in Europe as two separate records, Riding In Folkland and
Folkland Songs. The complete session, 28 songs, has only
been found on a Czechoslovakian double disc set Selections
of America (Promo Sound AG/DCD-768) circa 1996. SAAR Records
also has released this material their budget labels Gold Sound and
Rykodisc was kind enough to not only phone Jack but also offer to
cut him royalties on any sales of this release. This was mightily
appreciated, as no company proliferating these 50's recordings has
ever gotten any money whatsoever to Jack before. That said, the
worth of these recordings is undeniable. The surprisingly exhilarated
duo rips enjoyably through the European skiffle which preceded them,
cutting a swath of Americana right into the heart of England.
