Cornbread Crumbled in Gravy: Historical Alabama Field Recordings from the Byron Arnold Collection of Traditional Tunes. Note**Audio Cassette with booklet.

Product Detail:

In June and July of 1947 Byron Arnold, a professor of music at the University of Alabama, drove across the state of Alabama recording folk songs. The University of Alabama Press published his resulting book, Folksongs of Alabama, in 1950 but it was not until 1992 that any of Byron’s recordings reached the public via this collection produced by the Alabama Folklife Association. Included here are 14 beautifully sung pieces, selected by Joy Baklanoff, and a 70-page guide, prepared by John Bealle, which includes biographical information about Arnold as well as information about the singers, the songs, and Arnold’s experiences in recording them. Audio cassette only comes with the included booklet.
