Glenn Yarbrough

Glenn Yarbrough's high, clear tenor has served him well throughout his long career as a singer (that's him singing "Things go better with Coke" on all those commercials), and although it has been many years since he placed a song on the pop charts, he continues to have a large and loyal fan base. He was born on January 12, 1930, in Milwaukee, WI, where he began singing at church functions as a child. His entry into the world of folk music came while he was a student at St. Johns College in Annapolis, MD, in 1951, where a late-night singing session with his roommate, Jac Holzman (who would later found Elektra Records -- Yarbrough would release a handful of records on the label) and a visiting Woody Guthrie would prove to be pivotal for Yarbrough. He bought a guitar the next day.

Following a stint in the Army as a radio operator (he served in Korea) and then a stay as a radio and television host in South Dakota, Yarbrough traveled to New York City in 1957, where he recorded an album, Come Sit by My Side, for New Traditions Records and began regularly playing the country's coffeehouse circuit. He eventually settled in Aspen, CO, where he purchased a local folk club called the Limelite. When Yarbrough hooked up with two other folksingers, banjo player Alex Hassilev and bassist Lou Gottlieb, the trio took the club's name, becoming the Limeliters. The group was massively successful and recorded several albums (as well as the aforementioned Coke commercial) before Yarbrough left the group in late 1963.

He recorded a solo album for RCA called Time to Move On, which yielded a number 12 pop hit in 1965, "Baby, the Rain Must Fall," and solidified Yarbrough' s solo career. He went on to record several albums for RCA, including a 1966 collaboration with pop poet Rod McKuen, The Lonely Things. By the early '70s Yarbrough had started his own label, Brass Dolphin, and he reunited with the Limeliters in 1973, remaining with the group this time until 1981. In the 1990s his albums were being issued by Folk Era Records, including a 1994 effort with his daughter Holly called Family Portrait. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

To hear his fantastic warm and clear voice fills my heart with joy. Really enjoy his work with Rod McKuen...a magic pair. His album "The Lonely Things" is truly special, just like Glenn.

A unique and enduring talent. His voice is a gift from God, and he has used it well.

What a voice. What meaningful words. It gets no better. Thanks Glen

I like the comment I just read from someone that said his music is timeless. I wholehearted l y agree. He has always made me cry and feel the seetness of older times.

One of the few people on my playlist and my mom's
Saw him live in concert in San Diego in 1971 or 1972. Still amazed.
After all these many-many years Glenn Yarborough is still one of my all time favorite male vocalists. His music is timeless...
I had the privilege to be at the Circle Star theater in San Francisco where The Kingston Trio and Glen Yarbrough performed. It was a night I never wanted to end. Anyone have a recording of that performance?
kpbro
Looking for Glenn Y. sings the Rod McKuen song book. Any leads?
scarboz3400
Yarbrough recorded a song titled San Francisco Bay Blues, I cannot find it anywhere whether with Glenn as a soloist or with the Limeliters.
Can anyone help me find this splendid performance?
edspencer
My most favorite, ever.

Saw him once at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. His voice brings a smile to my heart and a tear to my eye. Kinder, gentler times. Marlene Barbere
I love listening to Glenn. He has such a unique voice...it goes straight to the heart of me. He's wonderful!

The memories of my young days...when we laughed louder, played harder, lived more carefree. The simple words of the old Folk Genre
He is the best. I fell in (and out) of love to his music. His voice and energy are forever.
His music brings back wonderful memories.
His connection to Rod McKuen is so obvious. Mc Kuen had a wonderful "way with words" and this man captured it well.

Feet of clay? Maybe you remember the song "The World I Used to Know" which has the words "you'll find my feet are made of sand."
dhadley627
barney says; brings back memories when we talked to one another about deams and all good things in life. That is why life is so good now for all of us.Thank you Glen oh so good to listen to his music. I hope there will be a new CD of Glens out in'09
Enjoyed his talent since the days when he played in small clubs and I was very young. He is on his last concert tour this year (2009) and my wife and I have tickets!
sassyjan
Brings back memories of simpler times... thanks
A true folk hero!!! a tenor version of Frankie Laine !!!
THIS WONDERFUL ARTIST BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF MY YOUTH .JUST TO HIM SING CONJURES UP A BETTER HAPPIER TIME IN MY LIFE .TRYING TO REMEMBER THE NAME OF THE SONG THAT TALKS OF HAVING FEET OF CLAY.
I've followed this man since the 50's , I wonder if anyone remembers "GOIN HOME"
