General Note/Comment

  • One audio cassette. Williams, Ella, and Lilly were recorded in Newberry on 27 May 1978; Brown was recorded in St. Petersburg on 10 May 1978; and the shape note singers were recorded in Crestview on 18 May 1980. (For the full recording of the shape note singers, see S 1576, reels T83-82 through T83-85.) These were field recordings from the Florida Record Project. That project, along with work for the North Florida Project, resulted in the two-album recording, Drop On Down in Florida, an exploration of African American musical styles in Florida.
