It's worth mentioning that there is a biography of Alan Lomax due to hit the bokshelves tomorrow, 30th Dec. John Swzed is the author and the book is called Alan Lomax: The Man Who Recorded the World.

The book is published in hardback, 448 pages, by Viking Press-Heinmann, and retails for a very modest price, £12.50 at Amazon UK.

Add to that the fact that Ron Cohen has a book on Lomax due shortly, and it sounds like we're about to be presented with an Alan Lomaxfest.

Sounds Priceless!
Its worth knowing that "The Land where the Blues Began" offers the best argument for reparations for African Americans ever presented (though that was not its intention)
Acording to Lomax, the infra structure of the Southern Economy; raildroads, levee camps, dams, earth works, roads, were all built by African Americans wheo were never justly paid for their work. Many aspects of the infra-structure are still in existance and still productive.

I'm not clear on this - is this "1959-60 Southern Journey" completely different from the "Southern Journey" series that was released on the Rounder label? It appears to me, that's the case. The notes say recordings were first issued for the Atlantic and Prestige labels in the early '60s - I've coveted that Atlantic box set for twenty years, but it was always too expensive. Now it's available on Spotify, and the sound quality is excellent.

Will the Rounder albums continue to be available, and will there be a way to get liner notes from the Rounder recordings? It appears that the Rounder recordings are available for download at $9.99 per album, but I see no way to access the notes - and the terrific notes were half the value of the CDs for me.

There are high-quality liner notes (but no lyrics) available for download at the Global Jukebox Website, http://www.culturalequity.org/features/globaljukebox/SouthernJourney/ce_features_SouthernJourney.php

Are the pressings high quality - centered, not warped, quiet surfaces,
etc. ???
