Tipple, Loom & Rail: Songs of the Industrialization of the South

As the American South moved from a primarily agrarian economy to an industrial one, the change was felt strongly by country musicians, and it revolutionized every aspect of their music. In Tipple, Loom, & Rail Mike Seeger explores the style and commentary of southern industrial songs. Extensive liner notes by labor scholar and folklorist Archie Green in a new, easy to read format.
