Abstract: Field recordings made by Harry Oster in Iowa, Louisiana, and Mississippi, March 11, 1957-November 12, 1966. The collection includes spirituals, hymns, and bible tales; blues, talking blues, boogie woogie, work songs, field hollers, bawdy songs, folk tales, cante fable, exempla, rhymes, street cries, ballads, folk songs, parodies, nonsense songs, lullabies, jokes, and recitations from African American, Anglo American, German American, and French- speaking Creole performers. Vocals are unaccompanied, or accompanied variously by guitar, harmonica, piano, accordion, washboard, hammered dulcimer, and glockenspiel. The collection includes interviews and conversations including discussions of racism experienced by African Americans. Son House, who was born in Mississippi, was interviewed by Oster in Iowa City and told tales, talked about his experiences as a musician, gave accounts of floods, talked about alligators and snakes, selling moss, and Creole girl friends. The collection includes Oster's lists of song titles and performers and correspondence of Oster with staff at the Archive of Folk Song dated 1958-1966.
