Thread Name: Info: Joseph Spence (1910-1984)
Subject: RE: Joseph Spence
The Arhoolie LP was recoded better than the Folkways material which was, after all, recordings made in the field on Andros island with less than state of the art equipment.

On CD:

Joseph Spence--The Complete Folkways Recordings--1958 --- CD SF 40066

Another CD I'm pretty certain you would enjoy even though Joseoh Spence is NOT on it is:

Deep River Of Song--Bahamas--1935--Chanteys And Anthems from Andros and Cat Islands (the Alan Lomax collection) --- Rounder11661 1822-2 -- These, the earliest field recordings ever made in the Bahamas, were recorded by Lomax and Mary Elizabeth Barnicle.
