Folk Songs of the American Dream

Folk Songs of the American Dream

Joe Glazer COLL01954

Many people have struggled in their quest for the American Dream. In this collection of music Joe Glazer highlights those groups who have toiled endlessly for this dream and on whose backs this country was built. Glazer sings the songs of immigrants, slaves, women, soldiers, truckers, the poor, the hungry and the disenfranchised and yet still gives listeners the hope that the American Dream can be realized. Although this is one of Glazer’s later albums, his music continues to evolve and captivate.
