DADGBE Harry Smith's Anthology (61* d) RE: Harry Smith's Anthology 12 Feb 09

I discovered the Smith work at Izzy Young's Folklore Center in the late 1950's. Rocked my world too. Harry used to frequent Izzy's shop, especially when he wanted to borrow money. Harry was a cantankerous, wonderful, contradictory sort of artist/beatnik - a friend of Allen Ginsberg.

I suspect that his Anthology (which was the first to make no distinction between white and black artists) was one of the factors which kick started the folk revival in the US.
