“Negro Folk Songs” by Lead Belly - album review

features in: (B-list) Album Chart of 1946(B-list) Album Chart of the 1940s

TJR says

Recorded circa October 1943 and thought to have been issued in 1944, although that has been impossible to prove via press, so far. The set was reissued (or issued for the first time) on Disc Records 660 in 1946. The Life And Legend Of Leadbelly (Charles K. Wolfe, Kip Lornell) notes that Asch 561 was scheduled but that it remains unclear as to whether it actually saw release, possibly due to the restrictions placed on Shellac, deemed to be a strategic material by government.
