Wow. Watching this is both wonderful and ouch/painful at the same time. I saw this program at one time...great to find these incredible videos of the old masters.

Yup, it is painful to watch. Especially since John Lomax was actually one of the good guys, but it is hard to tell from his language and attitude.

Yep it's painful so thankful to the guy for his great work in recording so many of the old greats. What treasures.
