“Sod Buster Ballads” by The Almanac Singers - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1941Album Chart of the Decade: 1940s

TJR says

The second of two Almanac Singers albums produced by Alan Lomax. As with the preceding “Deep Sea Chanteys and Whaling Ballads”, the songs featured on “Sod Buster Ballads” were all recorded on 7th July 1941 and issued on John Green’s General label. Again, it was all traditional folk with no overtly political content. There were four of them on this occasion; Woody Guthrie, Millard Lampell, Lee Hays and Pete Seeger.
