These recordings were made in 1947 in the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. The singers were all Negro prisoners, who, according to the practice of Mississippi, were serving out their time by working on a huge state cotton plantation in the fertile Yazoo Delta. Only a few strands of wire separated the prison from adjoining plantations. Only the sight of an occasional armed guard or a barred window in one of the frame dormitories made one realise that this was a prison. The land produced the same crop; there was the same work for the Negroes to do on both sides of the fence. And there was no Delta Negro who was not aware of how easy it was for him to find himself on the wrong side of those few strands of barbed wire. As one of the prison work-songs ironically remarked "It aint but the one thing I done wrong, I stayed in Mississippi just a day too long … " --- clancybrothersandtommymakem.com

"Italian Treasury" is the title of this remarkable new edition of a collection of music and songs originally recorded in Italy by Alan Lomax and Italian ethnomusicologist Diego Carpitella, from June 1954 to January 1955. The two researchers paired exceptionally in energy, courage, determination, and passion in the undertaking of their project. Within the span of seven months of a tight recording schedule, hopping from one location to the next, they managed to collect about three thousand recordings. The backgrounds as well as the intentions of the two scholars were different in their "voyage of discovery." Lomax was interested in comparative studies in the Mediterranean region and specifically how and why distinctive folk song styles develop, already preparing his mind for his Cantometric theory, while Carpitella was interested in how the music reflected the problems of the Italian south. Lomax and Carpitella set off to record the scarcely known music of peasants, fishermen, shepherds, street vendors, dockworkers, mountaneers, and suburban dwellers. They managed to accomplish their task shortly before everything in Italian society drastically changed following the developments of the economic boom of the second half of the 1950s. Rich in its historical and musical significance, presenting engaging and exhaustive liner notes, and provided with useful sources, the modern rendition of the Lomax Collection is an excellent example of the recent efforts to promote and re-master old recordings of traditional music from diverse countries and areas of the Western world. --- box.dar.unibo.it

A warning label should be put on this disc: FOR HISTORIAL PURPOSES ONLY. Alan Lomax's field recordings of African-American work songs are for ethnomusicologists and musical adventurists only. Few casual listeners will want to toss this disc on for pure listening pleasure. While tracing blues styles from these tunes is fascinating, it's not for everyone. For those interested, however, there is an excellent booklet with notes and lyrics. --- Tim Sheridan, allmusic.com
