TVD Radar: Pete Seeger, Doc Boggs, Del McCoury added to Folkways Vinyl Reissue Series

VIA PRESS RELEASE | In honor of its 70th anniversary in 2018, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings introduced its Smithsonian Folkways Vinyl Reissue Series, offering fans and collectors a change to own some of the record label’s most influential and sought after recordings on vinyl. The birthday celebration continues with four classic albums added to the series, meticulously redesigned from original prints and materials, photos, and audio remastered from the original LP masters by GRAMMY-award winning sound engineer Pete Reiniger. Each limited reissue also features the iconic black textured Folkways tip-on style album jacket and liner notes booklet that was included in the original release.

The upcoming releases in the Smithsonian Folkways Vinyl Reissue Series will be available November 30th and features four Americana favorites. Joining the series is Pete Seeger’s Goofing-Off Suite (originally released in 1955), Dock Boggs’ Legendary Singer & Banjo Player (originally released in 1964), as well as American Banjo: Tunes and Songs in Scruggs Style, (originally released in 1957). Additionally, in honor of its 50th anniversary, Del McCoury’s exceptional debut as a bandleader, Del McCoury Sings Bluegrass, originally released on Arhoolie Records (now part of the Smithsonian Folkways family) will return to print on vinyl.

Folkways’ unique nonprofit mission, to document “people’s music,” spoken word, instruction, and sounds from all around the world, has sustained the label for seven decades and built the most iconic and diverse collection of music of the 20th century. Some of the best-loved, all-time greats, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Lead Belly, and Elizabeth Cotten were Folkways artists, as are thousands of creators and preservers of cultural heritage.
