Product Description

About the Author

Jeff Todd Titon received his Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Minnesota, where he studied ethnomusicology with Alan Kagan and musicology with Johannes Riedel. He has completed fieldwork in North America on religious folk music, blues music and old-time fiddling with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. For two years he was the guitarist in the Lazy Bill Lucas Blues Band, a group that appeared in the 1970 Ann Arbor Blues Festival. The author or editor of seven books, including EARLY DOWNHOME BLUES (which won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award) and the five-volume AMERICAN MUSICAL TRADITIONS (named by Library Journal as one of the outstanding reference works of 2003), Titon is also a documentary photographer and filmmaker. In 1991, he wrote a hypertext multimedia computer program about old-time fiddler Clyde Davenport that is regarded as a model for interactive representations of people making music. He founded the ethnomusicology program at Tufts University, where he taught from 1971 to 1986. From 1990 to 1995, he served as the editor of ETHNOMUSICOLOGY, the journal of the Society for Ethnomusicology. A Fellow of the American Folklore Society since 1986, he has been Professor of Music and the director of the Ph.D. program in ethnomusicology at Brown University.

if you read the product description they mention CD's that are supposed to come with the book. I need said CD's for the course I am taking. Amazon failed to ship these with my order. Shame on you. I could've bought just the book for way cheaper than what I paid but I NEEDED THE CD's so I came here. OOPS! First and last time amazon shopper. Booo

HASH(0xb452733c) out of 5 stars I recieved the book with NO CD's Aug. 4 2009
By K. Hardie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The CD's are obviously an important part of the listening experience. I specifically bought this book because the seller's description said it came with 3 CD's. Thanks to Youtube, I will be just fine in my class. Buyers be aware that you might not get your CD's.

HASH(0xb3c56300) out of 5 stars Overpriced & Missing CDs April 29 2010
By Kathy (Bookworm Nation) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of my biggest pet peeves is the price of college text books. I am stunned that this little book costs $100, I personally think it is totally unethical to charge this much for a book. Another huge complaint I have it that I spend $100 for a music book and the three companion CDs are not included, I would have to fork out another $40 just to have the music to go along with the book. Shame on these publishing companies that overcharge for books and leave out critical material.

HASH(0xb3efc330) out of 5 stars If CDs are required, why sell it without? Sept. 29 2011
By J. Nevins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book brand new under the mistaken assumption that would guarantee me the CDs. I was wrong. Apparently a book that requires you to listen to tracks on an accompanying CD is sold sans CD so that instead of paying the already ridiculous price of $100 for a 432 page (including appendices) text book for what is for most, an elective class, I am forced to then turn around and order the $40 3 CD set, bringing the total to a truly ludicrous $140 for a class I will never think of again. Amazing. Thank you corrupt text book companies for screwing over yet another college student.

I'm going to try and find the songs on Youtube like another reviewer did. Being an unemployed student with a family trying to make a new start, I can't afford to throw money around like this.

HASH(0xb3d2de04) out of 5 stars Good read with a lot of information Sept. 7 2013
By K. Child - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoy this book, but just keep in mind that this does not come with the cd's. I decided not to order any cd's and just wait to see what my professor said to do. He ended up giving us a website link that had all of the songs on it, so that was way awesome. I don't think I'm allowed to post the link, but there are ways to find the songs on the internet for free.
