|Ramblin' Jack Elliott chronology|
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.
Writing for Allmusic, music critic Richie Unterberger wrote of the album "There isn't anything here remarkably different from most of Elliott's other vintage folk releases, but it's a good no-frills set..."
