Rare West Coast appearance of NYC folk icon Eric Andersen.
In 2018, Sony/Legacy Recordings issued THE ESSENTIAL ERIC ANDERSEN – a 42-track retrospective release covering fifty years of his recorded history. The double CD and digital download included the important classics which span across all his albums, including his early classics “Thirsty Boots” “Violets of Dawn” and “Close the Door Lightly.” Guests on this career-spanning, 2-disc compilation included Joni Mitchell, David Bromberg, Leon Russell, Joan Baez, Richard Thompson, Rick Danko Phil Ochs and Lou Reed.
Andersen first came to prominence as a performer in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and immediately became part of the Village folk and songwriter scene along with Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, and was at the epicenter of the Greenwich Village singer-songwriter explosion in New York City. His songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Linda Ronstadt, The Grateful Dead and many others.
