Leadbelly Sings Folk Songs

Nice clean vinyl and flipback cover.

Vital 1940s recordings of 15 songs featuring Lead Belly performing solo and accompanied by Woody Guthrie, Cisco Houston, and Sonny Terry. Tracks include Stewball, Lining Track, and On a Monday. "...[Lead Belly's] powerful, fluid baritone and brilliant 12-string playing have a clarity never heard on older records...emotional singing...[and] deeply banked political fires..." -- Boston Globe
