Texas Gladden The singing of Texas Gladden is one of the highpoints of American folk music. This Virginia artist put her own indelible stamp on everything she sang: ballads, comic material, game songs and early country music. This is the first album devoted exclusively to her singing, and includes priceless interviews and four rare performances on which she is accompanied by her brother, Hobart Smith. Portraits Throughout his career, Alan Lomax worked extensively with some of the greatest artists in folk music, many of whom he was the first to record. The Portraits series focuses in depth on these brilliant artists and heroes of traditional music. The Alan Lomax Collection The Alan Lomax Collection gathers together the American, European and Caribbean field recordings, world music compilations, and ballad operas of writer, folklorist and ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Remastered to 24-bit digital from the original field recordings.
