Biography

Musicologist, writer, and producer Alan Lomax (b. Austin, Texas, 1915) spent over six decades working to promote knowledge and appreciation of the world’s folk music. He began his career in 1933 alongside his father, the pioneering folklorist John Avery Lomax, author of the best-selling Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads (1910). In 1934, the two launched an effort to expand the ... Read more in Amazon's Alan Lomax Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A towering figure in folk and world music, Alan Lomax is best known for collecting the sounds of everyday people singing the songs of their native lands. This volume is a sampler that just scratches the surface of a massive re-issue project that makes all of Lomax's archival material available on compact disc--the broadsides and ballads, work chants, and dances Lomax recorded on journeys through America, Europe, and the West Indies. The selection, of course, is as varied as his library--Irish reels, Delta blues, and Caribbean calypso as well as songs sung, literally, by fisherman, preachers, and chain-gang prisoners. Be warned, this insightful collection may well start you on a long musical journey of your own. -- Michael Ruby

If you've never heard of Alan Lomax, this CD is a great place to start, with bits and pieces of several collections of his field recordings. It touches down in Spain, Italy, the British Isles, the Carribbean, the deep South, the Appalachians, and a few other places, too. But keep in mind that it is a *sampler* album. Many of the tracks are faded out well before the end of the song in order to fit so much onto one CD. Think of it as a catalog: if you hear something you like, you figure out which of the other CDs it's from and go buy it so you can hear the rest. It's fun to listen to by itself, too.

If you are trying to get started learning about roots music (also known as "real" music), please buy this CD and support a great record label (Rounder Records). The tracks are all remarkable in their own way. If you have any interest in folk or indigenous music, this recording (and all the rest of Lomax' collections) is essential.

This sampler is a wonderful gift for anyone who has an appreciation for the roots of American music. This is a great introduction to the Alan Lomax Collection. Alan Lomax was a musicologist who recorded and collected indigenous music from regions all over the United States.I have several other c.d.s from the collection and they are all wonderful.
