'He was one of those authentic voices, the expression of a time and a period, the late 30's & 40's when so much took place in the economic and social struggles of the U.S.A. that left its permanent mark on the face of America. These dramatic events also transformed the conciousness of the Folk music heritage,  restored its vitality and meaning and added riches to its stock. ...and Cisco was in the midst of them! Whether he rode the rails with his pal Woody Guthrie, or found work in the sweltering copper mines of the west, or sailed the hazardous sea routes of the merchant marine during the war, whatever job he held or whatever part of America or the world he traveled to, he inerged his songs & his experiences and made them one' ;)
