Alan Lomax sound recordings--for free

Post  pinhedz on Wed Feb 01, 2012 2:39 pm

We are indebted to Slimtimside for these links, at which he says we will soon be able to listen Alan Lomax's vast archive of field recordings.

What's already playable is pretty super:

Some great stuff there - though I've only found snippets so far, looking at the sound clips currently available. Hopefully the site will include full versions when it's fully up and running.

Some of these folks needed to be recorded PDQ, before they kicked the bucket:

Thanks--that's a valuable service to those of us that don't have a telly-machine.

Jean Ritchie sings "Gypsum Davey." Razz

But yes, it's a corn-yoo-freakin-copia; you used to have to go downtown to the Library of Congrefs to hear all this. Shocked
