AllMusic Review by

Alan Lomax is best known for his vital role in the preservation of American musical traditions, but he also captured music throughout the world, and this disc is filled with his work in England. He has preserved the little-known pub ballads and children's games that are so charming that you forgive some of the sonic shortcomings.
