Thread Name: The Lomaxes on BD (like graphic novels)
Subject: The Lomaxes on BD
French bookshops have large collections of Bande Dessinees ('drawn strips') - or BD's - sort of graphic novels. On a recent French visit I bought one about John and Alan Lomax and their folk song collection trips. Very well drawn too with good likenesses of the Lomax father and son.
Curiously Lead Belly sings 'Good Night Sister' rather than Irene. Any explanation from any French mudcatters?
