Record Cover of the Week

Let’s Sing Out!

Various Artists: Let’s Sing Out!

Let’s Sing Out! was a Canadian folk music program on the CTV television network from 1963 to 1966 (later it moved to CBC). This compilation record, produced especially for Oxydol (the detergent that bleaches as it washes) has songs by The Travellers (Canada’s best known folk group of the time), The New Christy Minstrels, Pete Seeger, 22 year-old Bob Dylan, The Halifax Three (with future “Papa” Denny Doherty) and others. No artist is credited for this boldly graphic cover that makes good use of sewing basket scraps.
