Da quando hai iniziato la serie di Alan Lomax stavo aspettando proprio questo disco... Faccio un appello a chiunque avesse la traccia n.19 di fornirla, in modo tale da avere l'album completo. Grazie! Marco.

Maybe this is just a trick to get some more feedback. Who knows...
No, sorry, I was in a hurry and I forgot the link.
As soon as I'll be at home I'll fix the problem.
And yes, Marco, I agree with you.
If someone has the missing tracks, this one, but the Salento one too, please let me know.
Any collaboration is welcome
