Note: Alan Lomax and Bill Broonzy discuss the economic conditions that produced the blues, the language of American blacks as expressed in the blues, "emotional access" to the blues, and their musical integrity. "The American Negro do not speak correct English… and I'm one of them – from them farms, levee camps, extra gangs, and things."
