Folk Used - CD 82496 Atlantic
Mint 1993 4CD Set Housed In A Textured Box With 44 Page Illustrated Book. 5 Stars! “The Music On This Anthology Has Been Derived From Several Notable Albums Of Field Recordings By Ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax Gathered In The South During The Early 20th Century. The Primary Components Include The Long-Players Sounds Of The South (1960), Blue Ridge Mountain Music (1960), Roots Of The Blues (1960), Blues Roll On (1960), Negro Church Music (1960), White Spirituals (1960), And American Folk Songs For Children (1960). Artists And Songs Of Possible Familiarity To Enthusiasts Of Folk And Blues Are Scattered Throughout. Mississippi Fred McDowell's "Keep Your Lamps Trimmed And Burning," "Shake 'Em On Down," And "Drop Down Mama," The Mountain Ramblers' "Cotton-Eyed Joe" And "Shady Grove," And Estil C. Ball & Orna Ball's "Jenny Jenkins" Are Taken From The Sounds Of The South And Blue Ridge Mountain Music Entries. The Trio Of Boy Blue (Vocal/Harmonica), Willie Jones (Guitar), And Joe Lee (Drums) Provides A Seminal Reading Of "Boogie Children," While Lonnie Young (Vocal/Bass Drum), Ed Young (Cane Fife), And Lonnie Young, Jr. (Snare Drum) Unleash A Variation Of "Sittin' On Top Of The World" From Roots Of The Blues And Blues Roll On. Perhaps Most Fascinating Are The American Folk Songs For Children, As They Transcend Race Or Religious Creed. Almeda Riddle's "Froggie Went A-Courtin'," Bessie Jones' "Hambone," Hobart Smith's "The Arkansas Traveler," The Mountain Ramblers' "Liza Jane," Mississippi Fred McDowell's "Freight Train Blues," James Shorty/Viola James & Congregation's Inspired "This Little Light Of Mine," And A Rare Confab Between Felix Dukes And Mississippi Fred McDowell On "Motherless Children" All Surpassed Their Era.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.... more details
