Originally released in 1968. Songs from all over Vietnam, that differ quite considerably. Pham Duy was one of the most revered singers at the time, and he is joined by three young singers Phuong Oanh, Pham Thuy Hoan and Quynh Hanh, from the north, centre and south respectively. As always with these Folkways recordings its fascinating to hear the folk song being performed in a different era.
