Biographical/Historical note:
The son of Yiddish writer Sholem Asch, Moses Asch was born in Poland in 1905. His childhood was spent in Poland, France, Germany, and New York. While young, Asch developed an interest in radio electronics, which ultimately lead him to his life's work, recording the music and sounds of the world. He established several record labels in succession, sometimes partnering with other record companies. Two of his fist record companies, Asch Recordings and DISC Co. of America, went bankrupt. They were followed by his best-known label, Folkways Records, which was founded in 1948 with Marian Distler (1919-1964). He was still working on Folkways recordings when he died in 1986.

Folkways Records sought to document the entire world of sound. The 2,168 titles Asch released on Folkways include traditional and contemporary music from around the world, spoken word in many languages, and documentary recordings of individuals, communities, and current events. Asch's business practices revolved around the commitment to keep every recording issued by Folkways in print, despite low sales. Asch stayed afloat by cutting costs where he could (such as color printing) and offering a high-quality product, meticulously recorded and accompanied by extensive liner notes. In doing this, he could charge a slightly higher price than other commercial outfits. Despite a tenuous relationship with financial solvency, Folkways grew to be not only one of the most important independent record companies in the United States in the 20th century, but also one of the largest and most influential record companies in the world.

Moses Asch's record labels featured famous and lesser known American writers, poets, documentarians, ethnographers, and grass roots musicians on commercial recordings. American folk icon Woody Guthrie recorded on the Asch, Disc, and Folkways labels, and the Asch Collection includes some of his correspondence, lyrics, drawings, and writings. The collection also includes correspondence with other notable musicians and artists such as John Cage, Langston Hughes, Margaret Walker, Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter, Pete Seeger, Peggy Seeger, Ewan MacColl, Alan Lomax, Henry Cowell, and Kenneth Patchen. Also in the collection are ethnographic field notes and photographs by as well as correspondence with Béla Barók, Sidney Robertson Cowell, Harold Courlander, Helen Creighton, Laura Boulton, and Samuel Charters. Asch hired various prominent artists and graphic designers including David Stone Martin, Ben Shahn, John Carlis, and Ronald Clyne to create album cover art for his recordings. Much of the original art and designs for these covers can be found in the Asch Collection.

Asch's output of recordings on various labels, including published recordings, open reel master tapes, outtakes, and acetate disks, in addition to his business papers, correspondence, photographs, and other files were acquired by the Smithsonian Institution in 1987. The collection came to the Smithsonian with the understanding that all 2168 titles under the Folkways label would be kept available in perpetuity.

CDR copy--FW-ASCH-7RR-2291 contains a Read-In for Peace in Vietnam, recorded at Town Hall, New York City. Various poets and a few prominent actors read a variety of selections, both prose and poetry often written by the the reader, relating directly or indirectly to the effort to end the war. The Read-In was produced by the Committee of the Professions. Stanley Kauffman was the "Chairman" of the event. This recording is very similar to FW-ASCH-7RR-2288; some tracks are identical and some are different, for unknown reasons. A commercial Broadsides recording was produced from -2288, entitled "The Original Read-In for Peace in Vietnam (BR 452), which as now available from Smithsonian Folkways (FW09752). See the other sheets for a list of tracks and their durations.

FW-ASCH-7RR-2795 corresponds almost precisely to the Folkways album entitled: The Original Read-In for Peace in Vietnam (FW09752), issued in 1967, recorded at Town Hall, NYC, produced by the Committee of the Professions, having, as Chairman of the Evening, Stanley Kauffmann. It consists of various prominent authors reading from their publications or manuscripts, or, in the case of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, from the Bible. Some presentations are prose, some are poetry. Some well-known actors are present, including Tony Randall, Maureen Stapleton, Hal Brooks, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Tony Randall managed to inject some humor into an otherwise intense, serious event. The tape was in a solid brown tape box, with the handwritten note on the inside, saying, "Wrong tape! Do not use! Lou Menashe" (Mr. Menashe produced the Folkways recording.) I have no clue as to what was wrong with this tape or how it differs from whatever tape was used. There are approximately 6 other tapes in the FW-ASCH series that are from the Vietnam Read-In.
