From Roger McGuinn's "The Folk Den Project" page:

"In November of 1995 I began a project for the preservation of the music I love, Folk Music. Each month I would record a song, print the lyrics and chords, add a personal note and put it on my web site, mcguinn.com. I wanted everyone to have the opportunity to learn the songs and to be able to sing them with their families and friends, so downloads were offered free of charge."

The lyrics, chords, and notes on each song can be found at the Folk Den Project website.

In 2005, Roger McGuinn released a 4xCD to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the FOLK DEN. The compilation contains 100 favorites re-recorded in 24-bit 44.1 KHz Stereo, and comes with detailed liner notes. The compilation is available at The Folk Den Project.

Description

This version of “Fair and Tender Ladies” was recorded at New York’s Bottom Line in 1977. Gene Clark and I were on an acoustic tour of the United States. Gene was playing his beautiful Martin D-45 and I was finger picking my Rickenbacker 370 12-string - dripping with compression. Our songs spanned the music of The Byrds, our solo careers and included some traditional material - including this arrangement, which could easily have been on a 1965 Byrds record.

Lyrics and chords available from Folk Den Project.

something about the lo-fi rainy-day strumming reminds me of the Bevis Frond
