I recently picked up Lucinda William's first recording at Best Buy after previously becoming hooked on her voice on "Dirt Wheels on a Gravel Road". I saw that her first work was released by the Smithsonian. They gave a link that proved very interesting.

For those that have an interest in Folk, early Jazz and Blues take a look at the following link.

http://www.folkways.si.edu/

They will burn CDR's on order for Folkway, as well as those on the Cook, Dyer-Bennet, Fast Folk, Monitor, and Paredon record labels.

Folkways Records now part of the Smithsonian was an avenue for new performers and those at the end of a long career. The history of this label is very interesting and worth the read.

Artists include Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Mary Lou Williams, Pete Seeger, Lucinda Williams and scores more.
