many of you already know this, but the Smithsonian Institution now controls the Folkways archives and makes the entire collection available...I just happened on the site today, and thought I would post a reminder about this great resource....

To amplify--
Many of Folkways' recordings have been re-mastered (particlarly the Lomax material) and are being sold under the Rounder label (although Bear Family has issued a few, also.)
   THe ones that haven't been re-mastered are sold as custom CDs or cassettes by S-F.
   CAMSCO carries all the re-mastered ones; you can also get them directly from S-F (at a significantly higher price.) Custom copies are best obtained directly from S-F.

Dick,

Thr Lomax material (eventually 150 CDs) that Rounder is reissuing is not from Folkways. It is from the Alan Lomax Archives; much of it field recordings.

The entire Folkways catalogue is available from Smithsonian Folkways, either as remastered reissues on the Smithsonian Folkways label, or as custom CD-Rs or cassettes.

Rounder was Smithsonian Folkways' distributor early on. However, they switched to Koch quite a few years ago now.

Oops. Right you are, Mike. I always get the LOC and Smithsonian confused. CAMSCO does carry the re-mastered Folkways CDs, but not the custom ones.
