    Hi.

    Apropos the Robert Johnson documentary thread (& whether it's a decent documentary or not), I thought I'd post these.

    American Epic - documentary series about, I quote, "the first recordings of roots music in the United States during the 1920s and their cultural, social and technological impact on North America and the world.”

    Episode 1


    Episode 2


    Episode 3


    Overview of this series and a connected documentary.

    All these videos show as unavailable to me but it reminds me of the way that A. P. Carter and Alan Lomax traveled throughout the South collecting original music.
    Call it documentation, inspiration or even theft, many of these songs would not be remembered otherwise.
