I would very much like to obtain recordings by JJN. I know that most if not all are out of print. His sound is unlike anyone else I've heard, very odd yet very compelling. I am particularly interested in the 1960 recording titled "The Ballads of John Jacob Niles" (Tradition TLP 1046}, but others are also of interest.

A recent thread reminded me of
early 20th-century concert singer
Andrew Rowan Summers, who recorded albums of traditional songs,
sung very much in the style of European classical music;
like John Jacob Niles, he played a dulcimer (normal size though).

Which reminded me of Niles himself, and brought me here.

All these years after the thread was opened, of course,
digital technology has brought us MP3 versions of recorded music,
and if you, as I did, look at Amazon dot com,
there are pages and pages of MP3 versions of single tracks
of John Jacob Niles singing traditional music.

The recordings that Niles made in his own home in 1952,
re-issued as "the Boone-Tolliver recordings,"
can be found at Amazon in four formats:
a vinyl pressing (no reviews, no suggestion what quality it is);
MP3;
streaming;
and compact discs, the label identified as "LM Duplication,"
and I'm darned if I know who that is.


There's a Tradition Everest compilation called
Best of John Jacob Niles.
The same label issued
An Evening with John Jacob Niles.
Both are sold in CD format as well as the digital versions.

... and, on Amazon,
with its customer-review feature,
there is a re-issue of
a John Jacob Niles album
following the release
of "No Direction Home" about Bob Dylan,
in which Niles is named and filmed for a few minutes.

And the album is reviewed by ...
John E. Niles of Silver Springs, Maryland,
who identifies himself
as John Jacob Niles's son.

Have you searched AMAZON US and UK, eBay, CDandLP ???
JJN recordings are readily available, sometimes at inflated
prices, but with patient watching usually can be had for
a reasonable price.

The REV-OLA CD reissue of the RCA VINTAGE Lp (reissue of RCA 78's)
is readily available under $10.

The FIRST JJN recording for ROYCROFT was available on a CD-R
from MCPRODUCTIONS iirc - don't have current info.

ROYCROFT 172 Negro Exaltations          78rpm c.1928
Marian Kerby, Contralto; John Jacob Niles, tenor
with piano accompaniment

Just Like a Tree Planted by the Water
He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands
