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
