Lead Belly Video
Posted in Honey on 03.01.06

There are some changes going on at Honey, the first one you won’t really notice but I’ve finally upgraded to the new WordPress which gives me a lot of fun ajax stuff going on behind the scenes. More importantly the new WordPress has a great ajax template called K2 which I will hopefully be migrating to soon – as it runs smoothly and has fun features like live search and lots of cool web 2.0 style nonsense. If anyone knows a quick and dirty way to port this site to K2 (as i don’t really understand how it is set up) let me know. There is a test site up here, but nothing is there yet.

I have also uploaded the only video of Lead Belly known to exist to the Blues Videos section of the blog. It’s from 1945 and it’s wonderful. I have another Big Bill Broonzy video still to upload, hopefully by tomorrow it will be up. Please use VLC as your video player as it don’t sweat the codecs game. To help out with the bandwidth usage of hosting the blues videos they are donor only, so if you like the site and want to see the videos I am hosting please consider donating. As a teaser to the video here is Lead Belly in 1934 singing while in prison for Alan Lomax.

Where do I go to see the video. (I realize I may be overlooking the obvious here.)

This version is by Sam Collins, rather than Leadbelly, unless I’m mistaken.
