Synopsis

Album 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
