Taylor Dobbs
Side A: Oh Freedom, The Banks are Made of Marble, Where Have All the Flowers Gone, This Land Is Your Land and We Shall Overcome.

You know him now as a U.S. Senator with his eye on the White House. But in 1987, he was the socialist-leaning mayor of Burlington who wanted to put out a five-song cassette.

A very special thanks to our friends at Seven Days for unearthing this album and sharing it with the world.
