Historic AFC LP Liner Note Booklets

by

From the 1950s through the 1980s, the Library of Congress issued long-playing albums (LPs) of recordings from the collections of what was first called the Archive of Folk Song, later the Archive of Folk Culture, and finally the American Folklife Center.  Some of these titles had formerly been released as 78 rpm records in the 1940s. These albums included instrumental music, song, storytelling, and occupational calls such as “field hollers” and “cattle calls.”  The LP albums were accompanied by liner note booklets of eight to sixty pages, packed with information about the recordings and the traditions they represented.

THESE LINER NOTES BOOKLETS ARE FREE DOWNLOADS FROM THE AMERICAN FOLKLIFE CENTER.
