Michael Hurley is one of the most beloved cult figures of the Greenwich Village folk scene and his songs have been recorded by everyone from the Holy Modal Rounders and the Youngbloods, to Vetiver and Cat Power. First Songs, recorded in 1964 when Hurley was only 22 years old, shows that his charming, bumming, hippie, wino persona was fully formed at an early age. The album features the first recorded versions of such Snock classics as "The Werewolf Song" and "Captain Kidd". Reissued on LP for the first time ever, with deluxe packaging including faithful reproductions of the original jacket and insert.
