Doctor John Recordings of Tom Joad? (37) RE: Recordings of Tom Joad? 05 Dec 99


Well, as I mentioned above, that's a pirated record ,Art. However, I thoroughly agree with Moe Asch's action here. If the holder won't release them let someone else do it. (Any mint Nic Jones LP's around?!)Similarly Document (Austria)recently released the whole (nearly) Library of Congress Lead Belly recordings and the L of C are very put out about it even though they would not release them themselves. You can't buy them in the USA - they'll put the dealer on the chain gang or something - but we can buy them here in the UK. Wonderful stuff it is too! I think Alan Lomax arranged the RCA Victor recordings for Lead Belly and Woody Guthrie in 1940 because the L of C would not release them at that time. The Rounder Lead Belly and the earlier Elektra LP's are legit. No one has ever bothered to release them in the order they were recorded which is a great pity (eapecially with the later Alan Lomax session)Dr John.
