American Folk Anthologies Music from the South, Vol. 7, Elder Songsters 2 (1956) CD
"This item is part of the Folkways archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included."
Of Elder Songsters 1 & 2, Frederic Ramsey, Jr. writes, "The mothers, fathers, grandmothers, and grandfathers [have] kept the music alive and burning in the home. There are ways of singing hymns and other songs that are peculiar to the family unit, and to [the] everyday environment... It is this everyday environment...that we have sought to capture in these two volumes."
