    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax KindleThe title makes the same outsize claims as its subject did but Alan Lomax's contribution to the preservation of certain musical traditions is invaluable His obsessive recording trips often as John Szwed points out with primitive euipment gave us a record of popular music as it existed across America Europe and the Caribbean just before technology and mass marketed song vanuished it To him we owe recordings of African Americ

    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax KindleThis is not so much a biography of the man as one of his career But it was an incredible and fascinating career which makes this book worth reading for one interested in what he did So one is left with a feeling for the deeds of Lomax but despite the many pieces of his writing the reader does not get so much of who he was Interestingly there is only one photo of Lomax in the book so you also don't get that view of himI knew very little about Lomax going in to this book and I didn't live through the time period covered With that as a context I did get a 'myth making' fe

    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax KindleThis is an interesting book a book that attempts to tell the story of a man whose life was dedicated to the art of collecting stories and songs Interesting in theory for me though since in practice this is an exhausting read that is a hell of a slog to plow through The book is nothing but an endless name dropping of people that I have ne

    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax KindlePainted in this biography probably truthfully as a champion of the disadvantaged genius Lomax is was a refreshing antithesis to the money seeking prodigy discoverers of today such as American Idol Instead of trying to find artists to fit the mainstream he tried to find and salvage what the mainstream was working intentionally and unintentionally to either destroy or usurp for its own purposesSzwed's telling of Lomax's story reads a bit like a laund

    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax KindleThis book was utterly absorbing Alan Lomax had his faults but his utter tenacity and unfailing dedication to capturing and understanding the world’s cultures through music later dance and speech is breathtakingIt’s also extremely relevant for where we are now in such a fractured and polarized America As Szwed puts it “he felt that the solution to the country’s internal crisis l

    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax Kindle3 12 star book Well written and well researched but it really felt like the last 34s or so were skimpy on a lot of Lomax's worklife details as if Szwed was in a hurry to get done or something Worth reading

    Alan Lomax Kindle ´ Ebook alan kindle, lomax kindle, Alan Lomax KindleAs a musician and music lover with a strongly developed sense of history I have great respect for the late Alan Lomax and his work as a musicologist This one man studied recorded and preserved an improbably large share of the extant corpus of American folk music The influence of his recordings and writings on the development of popular music in the late twentieth century is matched by no one else not even Bob Dylan Indeed without Lomax Dylan might not even have existed More broadly still black American music might never have found a mass white audience if not for his efforts
