This collection is an astounding piece of history. It captures not only the content of Hurston's work, but does so in her voice. She's a highly undervalued member of the American literary pantheon, so getting the opportunity to hear her share some of the major folkloric and musical influences on her work is such a rare treasure. And it's free, which is even more amazing! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of American history or culture would do well to get this collection.
