BOOK REVIEW / Sun gonna shine some day: Godfrey Hodgson on the inspiring journeys of Alan Lomax, who revealed the magic of the blues for the world: The land where the Blues began - Alan Lomax: Methuen, pounds 20
Saturday 21 August 1993
IN 1933, when he was 17 years old, Alan Lomax went with his father to record songs sung by prisoners at the Central State prison farm in his native Texas. Their equipment was primitive: the recorder weighed 500lbs, and the aluminium discs lasted for only four minutes each. Still, the songs they recorded there - The Midnight Special, Little John Henry, and Me and My Buddy Pick a Bale of Cotton among them - had momentous consequences for young Alan Lomax, for black people in the Deep South and indeed for the world.

But it all depends on the kind of information we get. We have prurient tittle-tattle in wearying and seemingly inexhaustible excess. Yet we know next to nothing about how the monarchy actually operates, and it is difficult to see how there can be a well-informed debate - a debate to which the Queen herself gave some encouragement in her 'annus horribilis' speech - until we know much more than we do at present.
