[boards slightly warped, foxing to page edges; jacket edgeworn, small chips at bottom of spine and bottom corner of rear panel]. (Music in American Life) Series (B&W photographs, facsimiles) An historical and critical examination of mining-related folksongs between 1925 and 1970, songs which "portray the life and values of miners, and reveal changes in folk society due to industrialization, urbanization, and mass-media technology. [The author] draws on ballad scholarship, labor history, and popular-culture study to explore coal-mining songs and also country music, Negro blues, and problems in current folklore study. He shows for the first time not only that commercial records can be used to document an oral tradition, but that they may be an integral part of that tradition." More than 100 illustrations, including "pictures of performers, song fests, recording sessions, miners' meetings, and union organizers, as well as examples of graphic forms that surround music: newspaper clippings, album covers, record labels, and advertisements."
