Rolfyboy6 Obit: Alan Lomax-An Era Passes (1915-2002) (86* d) RE: OBIT: Alan Lomax-An Era Passes 19 Jul 02

I was just a burr headed thirteen year old country boy in 1960 when I began hunting about songs. There in the libraries of those little Mississippi Valley towns were the Lomax song books. Some of them had notes on how to play the songs. It was my first school. And then I found the field recordings! Thanks Alan. You un-homogenized culture. And saved a hell of a lot of good songs. And recorded a hell of a lot of great music that "had no commercial potential."

I set out good bottles of red and white wine here at the wake. Gotta go get out the books and tune up the guitar. Here's looking at you, Alan!
