Label: Tompkins Square | Release Year: 2014

This double-disc has been pulled together from some 50 hours of tape that Alan Lomax recorded. Bessie Jones was raised in Georgia on the mainland, she moved to the islands (St. Simons Island) and soaked up the Caribbean influence inherent within that culture. The music from the Georgia Sea Islands is a confluence of African and Bahamian styles and Jones, already known, was here promoted as the leader of a loose choir of locals for a series of call and response work songs, folk music and blues ballads. There’s a gospel feel that floats over much of this music – a blurred line between field-hollers and church music, the Georgia Sea Islands housed people from two different sets of slave cultures.

Pioneering the use of stereo recording in the field, Alan Lomax made his “Southern Journey” in 1959–60, returning to the rural South (after 10 years abroad) and rediscovering its still-vital traditions. He traveled from the Appalachians to the Georgia Sea Islands, from the Ozarks to the Mississippi Delta, recording blues, ballads, breakdowns, hymns, shouts, chanteys, and work songs.

My Life in the Bush of Ghosts

Both Brian Eno and David Byrne had, for a number of years, been interested in non- Western music styles, particularly those of sub-Saharan African of the Arabic cultural sphere; In the Talking Heads /Eno records, such influences function implicitly, but on the album 'My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts' they became explicit.

Over Rhythmic and harmonic backing tracks, played by Eno, Byrne and eleven other musicians, Eno and Byrne superimposed taped voices from a variety of sources. 'It's almost collage music, like grafting a piece of one culture onto a piece of another onto a piece of another, and trying to make them work as a coherent musical idea, and also trying to make something you can dance to' mentioned Eno."

The title of the album is inspired by Amos Tutuola's novel with the same title.
