Thomas Stern Harry Smith's Anthology (61* d) RE: Harry Smith's Anthology 18 Oct 20


addendum to list of HARRY SMITH related albums:

the DOXY Lp's were issued 2011

MISSISSIPPI RECORDS also reissued the Lp's in 2014 (four 2-LP sets)
v1-3 from Folkways, v.4 from Revenant.
MRP-070 v.1 Ballads
MRP 071 v.2 Social Music
MRP-072 v.3 Songs
MRP-073 v.4 Rhythmic Changes


Regarding the suppression of the 3 racist songs - I am dismayed by
this choice. Archeophone has a magnificent series of CD reissues
of early recordings- they include some racist material, with
a warning to potential listeners.

Does anyone have access to a magazine, IIRC The Listener (US, not the BBC publication) - it was published in newspaper size, ran for a few issues then was merged with one of the standard music magazines perhaps High Fidelity or HiFi).
They published an article about "COON SONGS" which was eye opening.
Would love to see that again to see how they treated the subject...


Thomas.
