Arguably the best female folk voice of the age, Collins brought a fresh commercial edge to the early-’60s East Coast revival. Her third album was a breakthrough for the genre, with its versions of contemporary songs?Dylan’s “Masters Of War” among them?sitting alongside the cosier readings of Pete Seeger and company. Even here, with a young Roger (then Jim) McGuinn guesting on future Byrds smash “Turn! Turn! Turn!”, the seeds of change are being planted. Dylan’s “Hattie Carroll” is among the songs covered stirringly at Collins’ 1964 live set from New York’s Town Hall.
