Alan Lomax Collection – Southern Journey Vol. 6:
Sheep, Sheep, Don’tcha Know the Road? – Southern Music, Sacred and Sinful

Release Date: 1/1/1997
Label: Rounder

Product Description:
A voyage of the road and the mind, pioneering the use of stereo recording in the field, Alan Lomax’s Southern Journey is a 13-volume series of original recordings evoking the musical world of the rural South and an era before radio, movies and television. In 1959 and 1960 Alan Lomax returned to the South to rediscover the still-vibrant traditions of our country. For this album sin and salvation are celebrated in the rhythms, harmonies and lyrics of the many-faceted musical traditions of the South. Artists include Bessie Jones & the Sea Island Singers, Hobart Smith, Estil C. Ball, Fred McDowell, the Bright Light Quartet and others.

Review by Richie Unterberger:
“Southern music, sacred and sinful” is what this volume is subtitled, gathering 16 songs that either extol the holy (the sacred) or warn against/describe evil temptations (the sinful). This has some of the more renowned performers of the Southern Journey series, such as Fred McDowell, Almeda Riddle, Estil Ball, Hobart Smith, and Neil Morris, though they don’t necessarily overshadow the other performers. As always, the diversity is the most attractive element of the package, encompassing Georgian Sea Island groups, fiddlers, Delta blues, and church congregations. Willie Jones’ down-home “You Got Dimples in Your Jaws,” the same song as John Lee Hooker’s “Dimples” (one of the blues great’s most famous early recordings), seems a bit uptown in the Southern Journey context, though its inclusion is hardly upsetting. Estil Ball and Lacey Richardson’s “Tribulations” is a close-harmony highlight that will appeal to anyone who likes the Louvin Brothers or the Delmore Brothers.

    Shouldn’t “The Thinker” be in front of the Fox News channel?

    Sheep tend to gather in flocks – [large metro areas and the coasts].
