A superb songwriter ('The Long Black Veil', 'Waterloo', 'Mary Don't You Weep' et. al.) and stunning singer, Marijohn Wilkin's sublime 1961 Columbia LP of Civil War laments and aching spirituals, Ballads Of The Blue And Gray, is a long-neglected masterpiece.

Showcasing Marijohn's pure voice (reminiscent of famed songbird, Anita Carter), love and studies of folklore and folk music and deft arranging and song-crafting skills, Ballads Of The Blue And Gray stands as a unique, moving and profound concept album.
