Harte Recordings, together with the Alan Lomax Estate and with the collaboration of the Library Of Congress and the Association for Cultural Equity, will be releasing a box set in the Fall chronicling Alan's journey into Haiti. This massive project will include 10 CDs of music, Alan's trip journals, a reproduced map that Alan personally annotated, a book of liner notes and essays and the film footage he shot.
When the project is completed, the Association for Cultural Equity will return a full set of digitally restored, pre-mastered and catalogued recordings to the Haitian people as part of its Caribbean Repatriation Program.
This blog will chronicle the putting together of the box set, the state-of-the-art technology used in mastering the album, period photos and ephemera, premiers of the actual music--never before heard--and previews from the album notes and articles, as well as discoveries made by the Producers while researching all that is HAITI.
