The dun plain with straw gold glints from the sun, grey boulders like the faint strips of old worn mountains.' -Alan Lomax (1952).

From this home of balladry come sung tales of brave muleteers, kingly incest, and monks sneaking over convent walls; and the sounds of the pipe and tabor, women's strong voices over tambourines, and a shepherd's lone chant in his straw hut under the October moonlight. The Spanish Recordings Alan Lomax made these historic recordings in 1952 while traveling for months through Spanish villages, under formidable physical and political circumstances, during the Franco regime. Covering the breadth of Spain, these songs and dance melodies constitute a portrait of rural Spain's richly varied musical life, dispelling the common stereotypes of Spanish folk music. The Alan Lomax Collection The Alan Lomax Collection anthologizes the American, European and Caribbean field recordings, world music compilations, and ballad operas of writer, folklorist, and ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Recorded in 1952 by Alan Lomax. Remastered to 24-bit digital from the original field recordings. Contains previously unreleased recordings.
