Bob Gibson has been credited by many as being
one of the greatest musical influences during the folk revival of the
1950's and 1960's. Gibson co-wrote such folk classics as "Abilene,"
"Well, Well, Well," and "You Can Tell The World."
His songs were recorded by many prominent folk artists, including Peter,
Paul & Mary, the Kingston Trio, Glenn Yarbrough, and Joan Baez. Although
Gibson's influence has been felt throughout the folk music community,
he never realized the fame that his achievements deserved.
Bob Gibson was there at the forefront of the folk movement
and he was, and is a modern day troubadour.

From the back cover:
[Bob Gibson] is credited
as being an influence on most of the performers that came out
of the folk revival era, and that impact is still felt in most
of today's popular music. He should have been folk music's biggest
star, yet his name and story are sadly unknown by most. Out of
personal frustration at the lack of information about him, I approached
Bob Gibson in the last year of his life with an offer to help
him tell his story.
