Format: Audio CD
In the 1930's, father and son John and Alan Lomax travelled through the South, collecting field recordings for the Library of Congress, in order to form a permanent record of the country's musical heritage. In 1942, six volumes of these and other recordings were released on thirty 78's. This collection is a remastering of the third volume of this series.
The music is deep and vital; the sound quality - though as to be expected of "field recordings" cannot detract from the power of these spirituals, chants, laments, and worksongs, recorded by ordinary people - laborers, clergy, prisoners - in their ordinary settings.
The record is essential listening for anyone interested in the history of Jazz, Blues, and Folk in America.

Superb reissue of a Rounder compilation of Library of Congress recordings in mid-1930s. Cracking sound and these prison songs are part and parcel of the roots of the Blues-have mercy!
