Owen Dodson's THE DREAM AWAKE
James Earl Jones, Josephine Premice, Josh White Jr.
Spoken Arts 1977
In 1968, Spoken Arts invited the poet, dramatist and teacher, Owen Dodson, to prepare in verse an original text for a recording and filmstrip sequence to tell the black man's struggle. Performed by some of the most celebrated performers of the time - James Earl Jones, Josephine Premice and Josh White, Jr. - in complex recording sessions utilizing the talents of the Negro Ensemble Company, this is an epic poen in which the black man tells his own story, in his own way - and in his own idiom. (Paul Kresh, Director)

Classic Blues and Folk Arrangements
Homespun Video 1998

We're delighted to present this video on the songs and guitar of Josh White by his son, Josh White, Jr., an accomplished actor, singer, performer and teacher. He knows his father's repertoire intimately and can replicate it with great accuracy. On this lesson he skillfully communicates Josh White's unique guitar style in a way that is easy to follow and accessible for all players. Learning guitarists with a knowledge of basic chords will be able to learn arrangements to his classic songs, along with blues chords, bass riffs, turnarounds, strumming techniques and more. The songs taught on this video are: "One Meat Ball," "Betty & Dupree," "House of the Rising Sun," "Uncle Sam Says" and "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out."
