Remastered From Original LP Master Tapes!
This collection of songs by Lead Belly was assembled by Folkways founder Moses Asch from recordings made in the early to mid-1940s, and it focuses primarily on Lead Bellys observations on the hate and racism that permeated America and the world during this turbulent period of history. Songs like Jim Crow and Bourgeois Blues reflect his anger at the discrimination he and others experienced as African Americans, while Hitler was his condemnation of Hitler and anti-Semitism.
