Biography

Jim and Jean, Jim Glover and Jean Ray, were a folk music duo who performed and recorded music from the early 1960s to the late 1960s. They were married for a time, and were listed as Jim and Jean Glover in the liner notes of their albums, but eventually went their separate ways.

Jim and Jean’s first appearance on record, Jack Linkletter Presents a Folk Festival, was a live 1963 compilation album released on GNP Crescendo that featured a number of folk acts. In 1965, Jim and Jean released their first full length album, a self-titled release, on the Philips label. This album contains songs written by Tom Paxton (“Ramblin’ Boy” and “Hold On To Me, Babe”), Phil Ochs (“There But For Fortune”), Buffy Sainte-Marie (“Welcome, Welcome Emigrante”), Lead Belly (“Alabama Bound” and “Relax Your Mind”), as well as traditional songs. Alice Skinner Ochs wrote the original liner notes printed on the back of the album. In 1966, Jim and Jean’s second album, Changes, was released on the Verve Folkways record label. The title track was written by their friend Phil Ochs, and the album also contains two other Ochs’ songs (“Flower Lady” and “Crucifixion”). Phil wrote the original liner notes printed on the back of the album too. This album also contains songs written by Eric Andersen, David Blue, Bob Dylan, and Jim and Jean. The sound on their first album is more folksy, whereas their second album contains more session musicians, instrumentation, and even some folk rock experimentation.
