Alan Lomax - Global Jukebox

As you all know, Alan Lomax (1915 - 2002) travelled around, making field recordings of all kinds of folk music.
Now his archives are online, for all of us to enjoy, thanks to Global Jukebox/ Association for Cultural Equity (an no offense meant if I have misunderstood something here). Albums will be released in different formats too.

Why don´t you check out the recordings of the great Mississippi Fred McDowell for a starter?
And there are videos on YouTube too, of course!

The beauty of the internet demonstrated? I think so!
