Lost Train Blues features 22 selections from the vast holdings of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, 13 of them have never been issued before. The record includes work songs, ballads, blues, political and union songs, guitar, banjo and fiddle music and Native American vocal music. These recordings were made between 1933 and 1950 and represent the birth of the folk music collections at the Library of Congress, now the largest repository of folk and enthographic holdings in the world. The record demonstrates the groundbreaking work of Alan Lomax and his father John Lomax, but also places them with the context of other important early field workers. The deluxe record includes liner notes by Alan Lomax archive curator NATHAN SALSBURG, as well as a 14-page booklet with photographs and original research about each song, artist and folklorist. The cover features an original lithograph by artist JEFF TOCCI. Each selection has been retransferred from original discs and tapes at the Library of Congress and has been carefully remastered by sound engineer DON FIERRO making for the best possible audio fidelity.
