I can't remember what took me to to this page recently, but here it is:

Historic AFC LP Liner Note Booklets
From the 1950s through the 1980s, the Library of Congress issued long-playing albums (LPs) of recordings from the collections of what was first called the Archive of Folk Song, later the Archive of Folk Culture, and finally the American Folklife Center. Some of these titles had formerly been released as 78 rpm records in the 1940s. These albums included instrumental music, song, storytelling, and occupational calls such as "field hollers" and "cattle calls." Some of them were later released on CD by Rounder Records, usually with additional tracks and/or notes. These CDs are out of print. The LP albums were accompanied by liner note booklets of eight to sixty pages, packed with information about the recordings and the traditions they represented. In answer to frequent requests from researchers, and because the notes can stand alone as valuable resources, many of these liner note booklets are to be presented on this page. Booklets will be added as they are digitized.

The vast majority of these are PDF files for download.

A wonderful resource of stuff. Sure would like to have a lot of the albums that went with them...
