The Anthology of American Folk Music is a six-album compilation released in 1952 by Folkways Records (catalogue FP 251, FP 252, and FP 253), comprising eighty-four American folk, blues and country music recordings that were originally issued from 1926 to 1933. Experimental film maker Harry Smith compiled the music from his personal collection of 78 rpm records. The album is famous due to its role as a touchstone for the American folk music revival in the 1950s and 1960s

Emrich, who has dug up some very obscure material indeed, also includes a group of songs about the privations and persecution of the Mormons along with the more familiar material from Western settlers and miners complaining about menacing Indians, con men and Starving to Death on a Government Claim Salty and delicate, exuberant and mournful, this is a wonderful bag of Americana. About the only criticism you could make of this enormous and enormously rich book of American folksongs - for almost everything here was made to be sung rather than read or recited - is that it is neglectful of our black heritage.

Brings together songs, ballads, hymns, and other verse in the English language tradition

This is a very large heavy book with a world of music and poet history that must have taken a great deal of work and research

Although titled "American Folk Poetry", the majority of the poetry is song or ballads. The book is divided into several sections - each with subsections: Children's songs; Play-Party Songs, Games and Dances; Love; Child Ballads; Hymns, Religious Pieces, Carols; Wars and Other Diasters;Songs of Occupations and Sea, Forest, Mines; Songs of a Growing Nation: Cowboys, Mormons, Outlaws and Others. This is a very comprehensive cross-section.
Even the best known of the songs are worth looking up; for example, the book gives seven verses of Yankee Doodle. Often there are notes leading to recordings of the works or to other source books. There are also notes regarding the collection of the piece. The illustrations are delightful period pieces that truly enhance the volume.
I have found pieces here that my father learned as recitations not songs; it is unusual to find turn-of-the-century northwest items in collections such as this.
Highly recommended to any fan of the Library of Congress folk recordings, folklorist, folk musician or anyone else with an interest in this field.
