Virginia and the Piedmont.

While collecting Texas cowboy songs in 1942 the folklorist John Lomax asked one old cowpoke if he thought it was bad luck to be born somewhere other than Texas. Not bad luck, but misfortune," came the response. These two CDS of historic Texas material provide a glimpse at what non-natives have been missing. Though it does include some Alabamians, Black Texicans focuses attention on a broad range of east Texas talent. The selections include a spectrum of material, including "eephing," work songs, cattle calls, play party songs, blues, square dance calls, and rags.

The selections include a spectrum ofmaterial, including "eephing," work songs, cattle caUs, play party songs, blues, square dance caUs, and rags. The cowboy song enthusiastJohn Lomax recorded these singers in the 1930s and 1940s, thereby preserving some of the last remnants of a thriving musical tradition. A handsome and informative booklet, as weU as songs Uke the cautionary tale "The Cowboy's Life is a Very Dreary Life" and the humorous "The Zebra Dun," strip the romanticism from the catdemen's work but also make clear why so many stayed on despite the hardships.
