:: Session Notes ::
1 - These recordings were made by Lomax on a "Midgetape," an early dictaphone machine about 6" x 10" in size that used a small tape cartridge holding two reels of tape, stacked on top of each other. T866A is one of two extant cartridges of Alan's (the other being T866 - interviews with Ada Combs, Whitesburg, KY), and it appears that he reused this tape many times in capturing various ambient and incidental recordings. Here Alan Lomax talks with Harry M. Caudill, renowned lawyer, legislator, and activist and author of "Night Comes to the Cumberlands," the seminal book about the plight of the Eastern Kentucky coalfields, published in 1962. Caudill can also be heard in the interviews with Ada Combs. [Source: Editor]
