5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant restoration of Lomax's 30s fieldwork in Haiti, December 15, 2009
This review is from: Alan Lomax In Haiti (MP3 Music)
This set, particularly in the boxed set beign released today with Alan's trip diary and a musicological tour of Haiti was recorded by Alan Lomax with his wife on their honeymoon to Haiti in the Mid-30s. Like most honeymooners of their time (note dry humor), they carried an aluminum disk recording machine and many blank aluminum disks. Brilliantly restored by Magic Studio in NYC, produced by Anna Lomax, fruit of the honeymoon, and Don Fleming these disks can take you into a sound and time that is both eternal and out of both 17th Century Africa and France, little changed by the intervening centuries. The intense polyrhythm drum/song bands are particularly briliant as is the profound ability of song and dance to sustain the morale of peoples subjected to the worst imaginable hardships. I am not affiliated with the estate but did work for Alan for a decade. I believe these will win Grammies as did the Jelly Roll Morton box.

Did you REALLY find video footage on Disc 5?

While your inquiry wasn't directed at me, I certainly did. When loaded into my computer, the video footage pops up in quicktime, and it's remarkable footage to boot. Hope it works for you too!
