Group: The Back Porch Majority
Release: The best of
Genre: Folk
Year: 2001

Chatham-Kent Connection: Dan Dalton is from Erieau.

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

Songs:
Walk the Road, Friends, Long Time Ago, Cotton Bale Levee, Hand Me Down Things, Ladies Auxiliary Barn Dance (Dan Dalton), The Far Side of the Hill, Hey Nelly Nelly, Riverboat Days, The Banks of the Tennessee, Same Ol’ Huckleberry Film, Kentucky Lullaby, A Song of Hope, That’s the Way It’s Gonna Be, Black Tattered Rags, Let’s Get Together (Dino’s Song), The Road, Freedom Bird, The Bells, Honey and Wine, Brother John, Camp Street Hooligans, In the Ocean of Time, Slippery Sal and Dirty Dan, Second Hand Man (Dan Dalton), Once Again.
