Thirty-five hours of music, in twelve languages, were recorded. For in-depth information about the Project as a whole and the songs on this and the related tapes (FW-ASCH-7RR-0938 through -0947, among others, go to the Library of Congress website: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/afccchtml/cowhome.html. Tape -0942 and -0943 feature Warde and Pat Ford of Shasta Valley, CA, who had come to California from Wisconsin, to work on the Shasta Dam; FW-ASCH-0943 also includes one song sung by Leon Ponce. FW-ASCH-7RR-0942 was recorded on 12/26/1938; recording dates of -0943 and -0944 not provided, but based on Library of Congress information (see below), they were recorded between 1938 & 1940. Tape -0944 includes Warde & Pat Ford, Anita Dormody, Ben Pitts, Flora Earnson, John McCready, John Stone, George Vinton Graham, William Day and Charlotte MacInnes. Tape boxes are consecutively labelled UC5, UC6 and UC7. -0944 also is labelled Reel No. 3413 and has a date of 4/15/54 (presumably the dubbing date - see below). These three tapes, and the other related tapes, consist of dubs of 78's, many or all of which are in the possession of the CFCH Archives in the form of aluminum discs. In addition, the same recordings are at the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, where they've been incorporated into the Library's American Memory Project, available to the public on the Center's website, under the title of "California Gold". Also on the website (see below) is a lot of additional information about these recordings, the performers, recording dates, as well as transcriptions of the lyrics of many of the songs. See other sheets for listing of songs and their durations.
