Getting 78s ripped for me has turned out to be a big pain in the ass because of a myriad of reasons I am not going to get into here.
I finally got these done, Folksay volume one, a lot of these songs I am sure can be found on reissue, but this is the way it was recorded for sale in the '40s, and by now one would assume this is public domain material.
Pete Seeger just released an album of songs at the age of 91, he is a giant in the pantheon of popular American music up until now.
Guthrie was a big influence on Dylan, one of his very first songs, "Song to Woody."
I got some guy at work to do this, he had an older setup and a real time burner, but other than that, I don't know too much about his setup. I think the recordings turned out very well myself, there are tons of ditchweed 78s out there not worth your time, but this is pretty good stuff. One or two skips, the tunes are undeniably great, 900 Miles is like some Ur Caution jam meets O Brother Where Art Thou.
This was on the Moses Asch label, pre Folkways.
Some great lyrics and fierce banjo playing in this recording.
Recording is archived in flac, 8 songs running to about 15-20 minutes. If you want me to encode it to mp3 and reup it please let me know, but converting with TLH yourself is pretty easy.
I did not enclose a text file, so here goes:
