A broadside (also known as a broadsheet) is a single sheet of inexpensive paper printed on one side, often with a ballad, rhyme, news and sometimes with woodcut illustrations. They were one of the most common forms of printed material between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, particularly in Britain, Ireland and North America and are often associated with one of the most important forms of traditional music from these countries, the ballad.
The songs on this 15-track album were contributed to Broadside Magazine by folk singer-songwriters during the early 1960s and are performed by the Broadside Singers.

Sis was the publisher of the topical song magazine Broadside. She also wrote the song "How Can We Keep On Moving Unless We Migrate Too?" and many others. Sis sang, played guitar and piano and is playing accordian in the most common photo of the Almanac Singers with Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.
The Broadside LPs included material by emerging songwriters that didn't show up on those performers' own albums, and undoubtedly this box will get its most attention for featuring some of those items by Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Janis Ian, and Eric Andersen. If you're a committed 1960s folk collector, there are a number of such goodies for cherry-picking here. From a wider perspective, however, this anthology is an important record of how social consciousness as a whole grew within American popular music, especially in the 1960s.
