about

Though known primarily as a field recording pioneer, Alan Lomax made an album ofhis own in 1963 called “Raise a Ruckus and Have a Hootenanny.” In the jacket notes, he jokes about accidentally finding himself in the “never-never land of poprecording.” Though “Lazy John” borrows its title from a traditional song fromKentucky ballad singer Jean Ritchie, Alan composed this himself after hearing FatsDomino for the first time.1 It seems fitting to begin this album with his creative reworking of tried-and-true folk song motifs. Big thanks to Moira Smiley for digging
up this rarity.
