Because You Asked
By Gordon Bok
"These are some of the songs you have requested, or asked me to record. You'll note the preponderance of chorus songs; I'm always proud that you and I are part of a singing tradition... local friends are filling in for you on this recording. Here you go, then, and thanks for asking." ~ Gordon Bok
"With more than 45 years honing his art, Gordon Bok remains one of folk music's greatest treasures. His voice pours over this newly recorded collection of 16 of the most requested selections from his repertoire like the finest of warm mead: deep, thick and rich. As you might expect, the recording mixes traditional songs with classic Bok originals and fantastic "borrowed" songs that are sweet fixtures in Gordon's songbag. The recording is beautifully and simply done, with just Bok and guitar, backed gently by a terrific chorus of voices that beckon the listener to join in on the infectious choruses." ~ Mark. D.
