Notes

Back cover bears the logo of the American Revolution Bicentennial (1776-1976), below which reads: "These recordings were made possible through a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation."

Front and back covers list the title as "Roots Of The Blues", while labels and spine read "The Roots Of The Blues".

Pasted into the gatefold is a four-page insert with liner notes, lyrics, and an essay, "Roots of the Blues".

A1 contains two recordings on one band: "Louisiana" and "Field Song From Senegal" have been spliced together to show sonic similarities.
