NOTE: Fan-circulated clone of the original Gunsmoke release, to
which the excerpted comments were originally directed.
NOTE: The March On Washington material includes the excerpts from "Only A Pawn In Their Game" (and the embedded excerpts from speeches) from the Folkways LP We Shall Overcome as well as a complete version of the performance apparently taken from a broadcast recording.
DEEP: Excellent assemblage of often overlooked and
underrated sessions. Highly commendable collection assembles all
Broadside-related tracks, culled from a variety of sources.
Recording quality varies markedly, but an excellent archival
document. One for the purists, perhaps (sound is fine for the
period, some a bit thin). Some fascinating and unique performances
unavailable elsewhere. A nice cross section of early material.
Details provided as to sources and dates of recordings. Recommended
to those into this period - fascinating stuff.
