This fascinating collection of music from the streets of New Orleans was recorded between 1954 and 1958, and includes an inspiring variety of material, from vegetable peddlers' street cries to the musical saw and brass bands, from a shoeshine boy's hambone to Sister Dora Alexander's impassioned Russia, Let God's Moon Alone, written the day after Russia launched a satellite.

Recorded by Samuel Barclay Charters;
Produced by Moses Asch;
Design by Ronald Clyne
