He's a serious candidate for most influential musician of the past 100 years.

Reading a biography on him right now. Amazing stuff.

I got his discography but I never really got into it. I've been meaning to read more up on him.

He certainly is one of the greatest storytellers the genre had seen. There are other artists I hold above him as a whole (Son House, Charlie Patton, and Robert Johnson, among others), he's still among the greatest.

Lead Belly is oddly paired in my mind with AP Carter.
Both were conduits of music from the people to commercial scene.

What is a Lead Belly song? He didn't write Goodnight Irene or Rock Island Line, but they are Lead Belly songs. Similarly with lots of Carter Family songs.

Lead Belly's music got known by other people playing it, not so much him.

A friend recently turned me onto the version of In The Pines by Fantastic Negrito. Good stuff.

I have an odd question.

Next Friday, I have a radio show celebrating Lead Belly's birthday and I need to know how to pronounce "Fantastic Negrito"

Is it
n[eh]gr[ee]to
or
n[ih]gr[eh]to
or
n[ih]gr[ee]to?


[eh] as in "met"
[ee] as in "feat"
[ih] as in "sit"
