Other Albums With Dock Boggs


Anyone who is anyone knows that Dock Boggs has appeared in lesser roles on numerous albums, including Harry Smith's twice-much-acclaimed Anthology of American Folk Music. The purpose of this page is to provide information on his appearances on that release as well as other lesser known releases. Please let me know if any additions are to be made.
