"Without Lomax it's possible that there would have been no blues explosion, no R&B movement, no Beatles and no Stones and no Velvet Underground."
-Brian Eno

"No one has come close to Alan Lomax in illuminating the intersecting musical roots of an extraordinary range of cultures, including our own."
-Nat Hentoff

"If not for Lomax, few people would have heard 'Tom Dooley' or 'Goodnight Irene' and Bob Zimmerman might be singing 'Feelings' at Holiday Inns around Hibbing, Minnesota."
