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.
-- Emmylou Harris

Written by Bob Gibson with Carole Bender

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.

~Carole Bender, co-author
