Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music (b sides)

So Dust to Digital are releasing an album compiling all the corresponding b sides to the original 78s compiled by Harry Smith in, I think, 1957. With a couple of exceptions, as this article explains (paywall but you can view a few articles for free).

The original compilation, when reissued in the early 90s was such a big deal to me. It really shaped and informed not just a lot of music that I liked but just a general approach and understanding of music. It also tapped into a lot of areas of interest that I have in wider art, culture and societal issues.

Anyway thought it might be of interest to some.
