In the summer of 1972, Lin Lerner and Chet A. Wollner traveled throughout southwestern Ethiopia, recording the songs, chants, and dances of the various people they met. Folk Music and Ceremonies of Ethiopia documents their journey, exploring the music of Ethiopian ritual with analyses of performance practice, summaries of the stories told through song lyrics, and historical backgrounds which imbue each work with tremendous cultural significance for both individual performers and entire communities. The liner notes also include original transcriptions of song melodies with photos of performers.

The Anthology of American Folk Music is a six-album compilation released in 1952 by Folkways Records (catalogue FP 251, FP 252, and FP 253), comprising eighty-four American folk, blues and country music recordings that were originally issued from 1927 to 1932. Experimental film maker Harry Smith compiled the music from his personal collection of 78 rpm records. The album is famous due to its role as a touchstone for the American folk music revival in the 1950s and 1960s
