Hi all,
I just found that the Library of Congress has a few of their early releases available for online streaming (And single track download. So with a little work, full album download)

One of the best up for offer is 'Negro Blues and Hollers':

The original liner notes can be found here:

Great find, Lew. Many thanks.

I picked up the LP in 1970 or so and then the CD after it was released by Rounder 30 years later. Unfortunately, it's OP and used copies are exorbitantly priced, so this is certainly going to make listening easier for many.
