Big Road Blues has an excellent post with a number of mp3's attached about the release of a new boxed set devoted to field recordings: "In 1980 two young German blues enthusiasts, Axel Küstner and Siegfried Christmann, came to America with the idea to document the remaining country blues tradition. With their station wagon and portable recording equipment they hit the dusty road spending a couple of months documenting blues, gospel, field hollers and work songs throughout the South."
