Description
One of the key figures in American musical history performs 18 songs, including "Goodnight, Irene," "Rock Island Line," "The Gallis Pole," "The Bourgeois Blues," "Midnight Special," "Borrow Love and Go," "Big Fat Woman," "Old Ship Zion," "Backwater Blues," "Mary and Martha," and "Go Down Old Hannah."

"The whole of the great secular songs of the blacks were considered sinful. You could be kicked out of the church for singing them. It was difficult for us to get at this rich and unknown treasure trove of American music and lyricism because people were scared to sing them. So we decided to go where the 'devils' were—the people who were beyond redemption—and we found them in the prisons and we recorded a whole literature, an enormous song bag of new kinds of tunes and melodies and all sorts of things."—Alan Lomax, who first recorded Lead Belly (in an Angola, Louisiana, prison), speaking on NPR
