Released by Rounder.

These powerful performances recorded between 1933 and 1939 by pioneering collector John A. Lomax showcase African-Americans at work and in worship. Traveling for the Library of Congress across the rural south, Lomax captured voices that, speaking from the past, evoke the deep and abiding cultural values of the African American tradition.
