In early July of 1933, Alan and John Lomax visited Angola Penitentiary in Louisiana with the intention of recording the music of the inmates who lived there. That day, Huddie Ledbetter, aka Leadbelly, cut his first recorded version of what became known as "Goodnight Irene" and 11 other songs, opening a career that would keep his name alive more than a half-century after his death, carried far beyond the boundaries of Louisiana and the United States. Those sides are not on this CD but the sides that he cut on their next visit, a year later, are here. The runs, fills, fingerpicking, and strumming heard on this disc are at a virtuoso level to match the work of just about any bluesman playing in 1934.

On "Ella Speed," which clocks in at nearly six minutes, Leadbelly doesn't even keep a particularly quick tempo, yet he generates a range of sound suggesting that more than his lone guitar is accompanying him. "Red River" is just as startling, with Leadbelly shouting out the lyrics like a field holler as his guitar chimes and surges, alternating the lyrical and sweet with the emphatic and powerful. There are a number of classics-to-be on this disc, including the title track, "Irene," "Take a Whiff on Me," and "Roberta," making this an essential piece of Leadbelly's output. The CD transfer is clean enough to pull out some of the ambient sound behind the performance, giving a vague sense of the space and place. There were earlier blues recordings, to be sure, and Leadbelly recorded hundreds of songs in the 15 years that followed, but the impact of these early recordings cannot be underestimated.  AMG

15. Careless Love
Huddie Ledbetter was discovered in Angola Penitentiary by John and Alan Lomax in 1934, and over the next dozen years Lead Belly committed an extraordinary body of work to the safekeeping of the archives of the Library of Congress. With a memory that stretched back to the 19th century and a wit that addressed topical issues, Lead Belly spun an incomparable body of lore for the microphone of Alan Lomax. Rounder's editions of his Library of Congress recordings are the first American label issues of this material available for nearly 20 years. This first volume contains some of the earliest recordings, including some made while Lead Belly was still in Angola. . . . A varied and valuable portrait emerges from these first recordings of a man whose music measured up to his myth." --Record Roundup

1. C. C. Rider            
2. Governor Pat Neff

15. Green Corn
Further facets of Leadbelly's repertoire (and African-American folk song of the early 20th century) are presented in the 15 performances here. Along with more examples of early blues and ragtime, Leadbelly performs songs which derive from Anglo-Irish tradition ("Mama Did You Bring Me Any Silver?" and "If It Wasn't for Dicky"). The frantic "Gwine Dig a Hole to Put the Devil in" is a fascinating 19th century relic with a rhythm akin to primitive zydeco. Not everything here is so archaic: "The Bourgeois Blues" is Leadbelly's commentary on racist housing practices in Washington, D.C. --Mark Humphrey, in Record Roundup 80

15. Blues Around New York         
16. Mr. Hitler
This volume of Leadbelly's Library of Congress recordings presents several sacred songs, including six exquisite a cappella performances which are as moving as anything Leadbelly ever recorded. He discusses with Lomax the country dances he attended in his youth and demonstrates the music heard at these "sukey jumps." And he shows he had an eye for current events, demonstrated in songs about newsmakers of the day: "Howard Hughes," "Mr. Hitler," "The Scottsboro Boys," and "The Roosevelt Song." --Mark Humphrey
