Since 1928 the Archive of Folk Culture at the Library of Congress has
been preserving America's folk cultural heritage by collecting sound recordings,
manuscripts, motion pictures, and photographs; and for the last fifty years
the Library has published a series of phonograph records and audiocassettes
that provide highlights from the Archive's holdings. In keeping with this
effort, since 1983 the Library's American Folklife Center has published
_American Folk Music and Folklore Recordings: A Selected List_ to help
promote the best recordings of American folk music and folklore issued
by various companies and organizations the previous year.
Small companies and organizations produce the greatest number of traditional
music recordings. Many recordings result from field research projects that
have received support from state arts councils, state humanities committees,
and the Folk Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts. Although
these folk music and folklore recordings elude mainstream distribution
networks and seldom appear in record shops and catalogs, they have been
instrumental in preserving America's heritage and encouraging performers
in local communities. The recordings are also valuable resources for students,
teachers, and libraries. We hope that the publication of the selected list
will foster an increased awareness of such recordings and of the forms
of expression they present.
Each year a panel of specialists in American traditional music meets
to select a group of outstanding recordings from the approximately two
hundred phonograph records, audiocassettes, and compact discs submitted
by producers and manufacturers or suggested by various interested parties.
The resulting list is not comprehensive but is intended to make known to
libraries, educators, and others important recent sound recordings. To
be eligible for consideration [for the 1989 list], a recording must:
1. have been released in 1989 (or 1988 if not previously submitted);
2. feature cultural traditions found within the United States;
3. emphasize "root traditions" over popular adaptations of traditional
4. be conveniently available to American purchasers;
5. include well-annotated liner notes or accompanying booklets relating
the recordings to the performers, their communities, genres, styles, or
other pertinent information.
The American Folklife Center hopes that this list will encourage the
continuing production of documentary folk recordings, which in turn will
help conserve our country's rich folk heritage. We also hope that the list
will stimulate record companies to include sufficient documentation with
each recording to make it an efficient tool for education.
The recordings in the following annotated listings are produced by the
companies and organizations listed at the end of the booklet. None of the
recordings listed is manufactured or distributed by the Library of Congress.
The booklet also lists other publications that review folk music and folklore
recordings, and major mail-order distributors of folk recordings. We have
included Library of Congress catalog card numbers for the convenience of
librarians; they need not be used when ordering these recordings from the
[To suggest suitable 1989 recordings for next year's panel or] to receive
