• One of the all-time great singer songwriters to come out of the New York Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 60s.
• Both albums appear for the first time on CD.
• All songs composed by Tom Paxton.
• Enormously popular in Europe where he still tours every couple of years.
• At the historic 1969 Isle of Wight Festival Tom out-performed Bob Dylan – the audience chanting “Paxton! Paxton! Paxton!” for a full four minutes following his performance.
• “Peace Will Come” was released in 1972. The title track was picked up by Pete Seeger and can be heard to this day at peace rallies across the world.
• A host of great British musicians perform on this album with backing vocals provided by Mary (Hopkin) Visconti.
• “New Songs For Old Friends” was released in 1973.
• Recorded live before an invited audience at the Marquee Club in London, it contains all new songs rather than regurgitating previously recorded material. Guest singers and musicians include Mary (Hopkin) Visconti, Ralph McTell, Peter Sarstedt and Danny Thompson.
• Both albums are produced by Tony Visconti.
