Drop on Down in Florida
Drop on Down in Florida: Field Recordings of African American Traditional Music 1977–1980 published by Dust-to-Digital was originally a two-album, 27-track LP based on four years of fieldwork throughout the state and first released by The Florida Folklife Program in 1981. The album was intended to highlight African American music traditions for a statewide public audience, blues and sacred traditions in particular. Drawing upon extensive fieldwork materials now housed in the State Archives of Florida, the expanded reissue includes nearly 80 previously unreleased minutes of music on 28 new tracks, plus numerous photos documenting the musicians and communities that perpetuated these traditions.Quantity
