Art of Field Recording: Volume I : 50 Years of Traditional American Music
Art of Field Recording: Volume I : 50 Years of Traditional American Music Documented by Art Rosenbaum
Art of Field Recording: Volume IThe sampler CD for this set was released in 2006 with the thought that the final result would be a five' disc set, but after spending a long time with Art pondering the vast quantity of material he has amassed over the years, we decided to extend the release into multiple box sets. Volume I was released in November 2007, and Volume II is planned for 2008. If all goes well, there will be a third and final installment in 2009.
Art of Field Recording Volume I is a four disc set with a 96 page book that contains essays and annotations by Art and over 100 illustrations and photographs by Art and his wife Margo. Art took a similar approach to Harry Smith in assembling the music: the discs are divided into Blues, Instrumental and Dance, Sacred, and a Survey disc that has a little bit of everything.
