Bleeker Street: Greenwich Village in the ’60s, an arresting tribute to ’60s folk music, as performed by Jonatha Brooke, Iris DeMent, Cry Cry Cry, and 16 others, finds the new generation of folkies interpreting the mother’s milk of the ’60s folk canon. Not every performance lives up to the simmering desperation or luminous beauty of the originals, but the surprise is how few songs sound dated in the ’90s. B
