This album of powerful work songs was recorded in Texas prisons ì in the mid-'60s and offers a look at a tradition now nearly ì extinct, though one that served real needs and functions for ì black prisoners until recent times. Worksongs helped give ì comfort to prisoners and literally helped them to survive the ì grueling work demanded of them. This record is a companion to ì the Harvard University Press book of the same title.
