The editorial goal of Fast Folk Musical Magazine was to promote the performance of "noncommercial artistic music," also known as American folk music. This collection of 12 songs includes several different musical styles ranging from traditional folk, blues, and old-time to political and humorous. Headlining this collection is Steve Forbert singing "30,000 Men." Welshman Dave Walters performs "When an Old Friend Lays Down" in the traditional folk style; Bob Norman with Paul Kaplan on harmonica performs a bluesy "Mazes," a song about Ms. Pac Man; and Joey George creates an old-timey musical feel with "Everybody Needs Religion." John Gorka ("The Land of the Bottom Line"), Roger Rosen ("Killing Ground"), and Geoff Bentley ("Tell It Like It Is") provide songs about social issues?and Richard Meyer wryly notes that "All My Ex-Girlfriends Are Married." the liner notes include a copy of the magazine.
