Click for larger imageThe December 22, 2012, edition of The Wall Street Journal includes Eddie Dean’s review of Stephen Wade’s recent book The Beautiful Music All Around Us: Field Recordings and the American Experience.

“The profiles gathered here display the breadth of the folk tradition in pre-World War II America, as if a song were on every lip or fingertip, the way cellphones or iPads are today. . . . The Beautiful Music All Around Us is a treasure trove of scrupulous research and on-the-road reportage.”
