Georgia Sea island Songs

This week's lp is recordings made in the Georgia sea island by Alan Lomax of both religious and secular traditionnal songs. You'll have to read the liner notes that i provide in the zip file to learn about these ancient black traditions that remained for so long  in these island and you'll know how wonderful these performances are by listening to it. In a way it reminds me a lot of another group singing, those of the Bahamas islands from which Joseph Spence comes from.
You can hear the same performers in many other recordings by Aln Lomax, notably in the Southern Journey cd series.

Thanks for this, lovely stuff.

I was lucky to attend a 'talk' by Shirley Collins a few years ago, where she read from her original diary of her trip to the islands with A. Lomax, it was spell binding.
