Thanks for this. I remember almost buying this some years ago and for some reasons not. Great to finally be able to hear it.

a strange and completely random file format appears when i tried to download this. Please re-up the original link. I'm really looking forward to this. Great, great site.

zhao said...

Same thing happens to me: it is some kind of file - but NOT mp3 for me...
So I can't get it either...

Wow, I went to a show of and about Alan Lomax at Brooklyn Fireproof a couple of months ago. The music recordings were the most interesting part of that exhibition, but the context was a poor one for sitting down to listen to prison songs. I was waiting for a concert to start, with a beer in my hand, trying to entertain a girlfriend who didn't last much longer. The band was Vetiver.
