Description A voyage of the road and the mind, pioneering the use of stereo recording in the field, Alan Lomax's Southern Journey is a 13-volume series of original recordings evoking the musical world of the rural South and an era before radio, movies and television. In 1959 and 1960 Alan Lomax returned to the South to rediscover the still-vibrant traditions of our country. These classic recordings of American folk music recorded in the Blue Ridge Mountains include such artists as Wade Ward, Hobart Smith, E.C. Ball, Texas Gladden and many others.
