Interview with Laurie Pritchett
QUESTION 19
INTERVIEWER:

ANYTIME ANYBODY TALKS ABOUT ALBANY, EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT THE MUSIC AND THE SPIRITUALITY - WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER OF THE MUSIC?

Chief Laurie Pritchett:

You know, it was some of the prettiest music, I used to go down and listen to it. Uh, the freedom songs, and we had a young lady, I, I can't recall her name, she was uh, one of the leader's down uh, child. And she was, she had a beautiful voice and you know, they used to sing - we ain't going to let Chief Pritchett turn us around - you know. And then they would get into the other freedom songs, and they were beautiful. As a matter of fact, they were recorded, somebody recorded ‘em and I was given a album of ‘em. I still have ‘em. But it was beautiful music.
