Dock Boggs Vol. 3 (1970) CD

  • $1799


"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

Moran "Dock" Boggs, miner and musician, was first recognized for his "unorthodox" playing style. His popularity only grew after he was featured on the Anthology of American Folk Music (SFW40090) in 1952 and made Boggs one of the most influential musicians in America. This third installment of Boggs music on Folkways includes the classics "Turkey in the Straw" and the haunting "Prayer of a Miners Child." Extensive liner notes accompany this album and include facsimiles of some of Boggs original handwritten lyrics.
