Published Recordings from the Archive of Folk Culture

The best known publications from the Archive of Folk Culture are the albums edited by Alan Lomax, B. A. Botkin, Duncan Emrich, Frances Densmore, Willard Rhodes, Archie Green, Charles Seeger, and other folklorists, issued by the Library of Congress beginning in 1941 under the series title Folk Music of the United States. A second series, Folk Music of America, was released at the time of the U.S. Bicentennial. The American Folklife Center and the Recorded Sound Section of the Library collaborated with Rounder Records and Rykodisc to re-issue many of the Center's recordings in compact disc format. Rycodisc recordings have been reissued on Smithsonian Folkways. In addition, commercial recording companies have issued more than 100 recordings compiled from the collections of the Archive.
