Extraordinary Roots Music

"Alan Lomax recorded these work songs and blues at Southern Prison Farms in the middle of the 20th Century. This is a recording of a rich cultural tradition, genuine folk music, creative, spontaneous, humorous, sometimes poignant. I remember hearing this almost 40 years ago when my elder brother brought the vinyl disc home from the University of Virginia, when campus stores sold more books and recordings than they did T-shirts.
It made an indelible impression on me. When I saw this was available on CD, I had to have it.
