Jack Elliot Sings is an album by American folk musician Ramblin' Jack Elliott, released in Great Britain in 1957. Elliott's name is misspelled on the cover.

History[edit]

The original release had his name misspelled and was a 10-inch LP. In 1960, four of the songs were released on an EP titled Jack Elliott.

The album was recorded in February and March 1956 by John R.T. Davis at his home in Burnham, Buckinghamshire, England. It is an obscure release in Elliott's catalog that even collectors aren't aware of.[1]
