Behind the Barricades - The Best of David Rovics

£10.00

Product Information

What better to have as volume 2 in the new AK Folk series than an incredible greatest hits collection from the best of the new generation of singer/songwriters. "In these days of ongoing neo-conservatism he carries the torch of dissent and protest - in fact if the great Phil Ochs were to come back from the dead tonight he'd probably be hailed as the new David Rovics" - Andy Kershaw, BBC Radio 3 David Rovics is no stranger to the picket line and North American protest scene, bringing his guitar and songs to support those who struggle for change. A prolific songwriter, this greatest hits package takes, over 70 minutes, the best from his first 6 self-released CDs, together with 3 previously unreleased tracks specially recorded for this collection. With his accomplished bluegrass style, flat picking, and incisive lyrics, Rovics has been dubbed, "the musical version of Democracy Now!" by radio host Amy Goodman. Shaping the issues of today into a witty and often biting commentary, Rovics carries on a folk tradition of rabble-rousing and agitating that would make Joe Hill and Woody Guthrie proud. "Listen to David Rovics!" - Pete Seeger 2004
