Fog City Blues: The Harry Smith B-Sides

Nov 4, 2020

A new box set features the flip sides of 78-rpm records that Harry Smith included on the Anthology of American Folk Music.

In 1952, Folkways Records published the legendary 6-LP series entitled the Anthology of American Folk Music, compiled from original 78s by record collector, filmmaker, artist, and anthropologist Harry Smith. 68 years later, The Harry Smith B-Sides represents a mirror image of the Anthology’s tracklist, and a way to hear the complete statement of each original 78-rpm record included on Smith’s landmark compilation. Wednesday 11/04 at 9 pm.
