Subject: Huddie and Alan on Radio 1944
Here's a wonderful recording recently discovered recording of Alan Lomax and Leadbelly singing together in 1944.
WNYC Recording--Lomax and LeadbetterIt is interesting to me that Lomax appears to call Huddie Leadbelly "Hewdy", which is not how I thought his name was pronounced. Anyway, this is a great recording, remarkably clear.
