a group called cultural equity has funded the digitization of roughly 17,400 audio files worth of alan lomax's life's work...field and otherwise recordings of all kinds of music, interviews and thoughts. prison songs, play songs, blues songs, folk songs.
decidedly not the usual fodder for my spot here, but mr. lomax was the very inspiration for this weblog, so i had to post it. a real treasure trove here. the modern folk music of america.
