Editorial Reviews

Originally a box set and long out-of-print, this third single- CD volume of Leadbelly's Library of Congress recordings is the most complete representation of the great Texas singer and 12-string guitarist. Its 16 tracks embrace blues, spirituals, and folk songs culled from 1934 to 1942. We're treated to spoken discourses on everything from cattle herding to dancing ("if you're not crossing your legs, you ain't dancin'") to footwear. And we hear such rarities as "Mr. Hitler," Leadbelly's anti-Nazi ballad; and socially aware numbers like "The Roosevelt Song" and "The Scottsboro Boys." Although Leadbelly's writing and sheer presence made him an influence on the blues scene, this collection sets him firmly in the storytelling tradition of the songster--a predecessor of later artists like Mance Lipscomb--where he belongs. --Ted Drozdowski

Product Description

This volume of Leadbelly's Library of Congress recordings presents several sacred songs, including six exquisite a cappella performances which are as moving as anything Leadbelly ever recorded. He discusses with Lomax the country dances he attended in his youth and demonstrates the music heard at these "sukey jumps." And he shows he had an eye for current events, demonstrated in songs about newsmakers of the day: "Howard Hughes," "Mr. Hitler," "The Scottsboro Boys," and "The Roosevelt Song." --Mark Humphrey
