Songs from the Depression
Released: Jan 1959
Label: Folkways Records
It's fitting that Songs From the Depression opens with the Carter Family's "No Depression in Heaven" -- "I'm going where there's no depression/ To the lovely land that's free from care/ I'll leave this world of toil and trouble/ My home's in Heaven, I'm going there." Now that's authentic American folk lyricism, impeccably played by one of the movement's iconic acts. Just be careful, though; playing this album after your 401K has been raided by corporate scoundrels could cause (ahem) depression.
