About the Author

Alan Lomax is an ethnomusicologist, record producer, and network radio host/writer. His work includes the prize-winning 1990 PBS television series American Patchwork and the multimedia interactive database called the The Global Jukebox, which he produced as an anthropologist for Columbia University and Hunter College.

Reviews

"Without Lomax it's possible that there would have been no blues explosion, no R&B movement, no Beatles and no Stones and no Velvet Underground."
--Brian Eno

"No one has come close to Alan Lomax in illuminating the intersecting musical roots of an extraordinary range of cultures, including our own."
--Nat Hentoff

"If not for Lomax, few people would have heard 'Tom Dooley' or 'Goodnight Irene' and Bob Zimmerman might be singing 'Feelings' at Holiday Inns around Hibbing, Minnesota."
--Newsweek
