Notes: The Back Porch Majority was one of several large folk music ensembles that were popular during the first half of the 1960’s. Along with the Serendipity Singers, they were considered rivals and imitators of the New Christy Minstrels, but they had a closer relationship to the latter group than any of their rivals, as they were founded by the same man, (Randy Sparks).  The Back Porch Majority did better than Sparks could have hoped for, despite the fact that they entered the field of “big band” folk music somewhat late — they were chosen to entertain at the White House in 1965, and were signed by Columbia Records to the latter company’s Epic label, where they ultimately released five LPs, including a live album recorded at Sparks’ club, Ledbetters. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
