Synopsis

Amazon.com
Like its predecessor, Anglo-American Ballads, Volume Two presents oft-sung tunes as performed by unsung singers. Culled from the 1943 Library of Congress series Folk Music of the United States, these 10 antique tunes were gathered by a team of folklorists headed by Alan Lomax. The likes of Hazard, Kentucky's Justus Begley and Salem, Virginia's Mrs. Texas Gladden are hardly polished performers, but their naturalness adds character to these mournful ballads. Extensive liner notes, lyrics, and old photos add still greater appeal to this fascinating package. --Steven Stolder

(5 out of 5 stars)

"These recordings are beautiful gems, taking as back to our roots and remembering that out culture is indeed a beautifully diverse melting pot.As always, one can expect A-1 quality on these recordings, as is true from practically everything Alan Lomax made.Listening to these tracks will better tell the tales and the review better than I can. Any lover of American roots music will be enthralled by this disc and the rest of the collection that goes with it."
