The John Stewart Collection

“... His work...constitutes a stunning body of lonesome reflections on the promise and betrayal of the American experience... His is a music of longing... a hushed hope that what is best in this country will somehow emerge....”
—A. Lin Neumann, Phoenix New Times

John Stewart died in San Diego, California ... in the hospital he was born in on September 5th, 1939 ... 68 years ago. He spent his lifetime writing and recording songs that chronicle the unique people and culture that is America. At age nineteen, John recorded an album for Roulette Records with his first folk group, The Cumberland Three. During that same period, the young songwriter had the notable distinction of having several of his songs recorded by The Kingston Trio.

In 1961, John joined the Kingston Trio replacing founding member Dave Guard. During the next seven years, the group released sixteen albums which included the hits Where Have All The Flowers Gone, The Reverend Mr. Black and Greenback Dollar. As a member of the trio, he also composed many of the group's recordings including Chilly Winds, Road To Freedom, and One More Town.

John left the trio in 1967 and established a world following based on over 50 solo releases. His Nashville recorded LP, California Bloodlines was chosen by Rolling Stone as one of the 200 best albums of all times. In recent years, John's songs have been recorded by Susan Boyle (Daydream Believer is on her smash CD "I Dreamed a Deam"),
Rosanne Cash (Runaway Train was a #1 country hit), Dave Alvin, Albert Lee, Nanci Griffith, The Monkees (Daydream Believer was a #1 hit world-wide), Ann Murray, Joan Baez, The Beat Farmers, The Four Tops and many others...even Alvin and the Chipmunks covered Daydream Believer!
