Let me along with Barry also encourage people to listen to the Lomax Deep River of Song CD, for a good listen to how many Caribbean songs were sung before our "folk" community got hold of them; these "field" recordings are really like sitting in on someone else's song party and trying to figure out what's going on (and with a 20-something Alan Lomax asking questions).
