Ian & Sylvia transcended folk music. In the early 1960s I viewed folk music with disdain. In January 1967, however, I attended a concert by Ian & Sylvia and was impressed but largely ignored their music. A few years ago I rediscovered old LPs such as "Play One More" and "So Much for Dreaming." I was and remain overwhelmed. "Long Long Time" is excellent, and the cut written by Dylan, "Tears of Rage," is among their very best.
