Torrent description

Joshua Daniel White was born in Greenville, South Carolina, in 1914. As a child he worked as a guide for a local street-singer, Blind John Henry Arnold. In 1932 White moved to New York City where he obtained a recording contract with ARC and had a great success with songs such as St. James Infirmary Blues and the anti-lynching song, Strange Fruit.

In 1939 White appeared with Paul Robeson in the show John Henry. During the Second World War he performed for the US Office of War Information. These radio programs were broadcast by the BBC and he became very popular in Britain.

After the war the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) began an investigation into the entertainment industry. In its first three years the HUAC managed to get a large number of people blacklisted for their political views. On 22nd June, 1950, Theodore Kirkpatrick, a former FBI agent and Vincent Harnett, a right-wing television producer, published Red Channels, a pamphlet listing the names of 151 writers, directors and performers who they claimed had been members of subversive organizations before the Second World War but had not so far been blacklisted.

White was one of those named in Red Channels. This became a serious problem when a free copy was sent to those involved in employing people in the entertainment industry. All those people named in the pamphlet were blacklisted until they appeared in front of the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and convinced its members they had completely renounced their radical past.

On 1st September, 1950, White appeared before the HUAC. He admitted he had performed at charity concerts with Paul Robeson but argued that he was unaware of the political groups behind them. White claimed that the only communist he knew was Robeson's friend, Benjamin Davis.

However, despite this testimony, White was not removed from the blacklist in the United States. White continued his career as a folk-singer in Europe where his work was published by Vogue (France) and EMI (Britain). White also recorded for Electra (1954-62) and Mercury (1962-4). Josh White died on 5th September, 1969.

This is a re-issue of the original album released on the Nixa Jazz Today series.
Recorded in London on 30th and 31st January 1956.
