Below is Huddie Ledbetter’s (known as „Lead Belly“ or, less correct, „Leadbelly“) complete discography (or, more technical, bio-discography) as it is known to the public. It contains all issued and unissued tracks as noted in several professional discographies and the liner notes of the pertinent CD-issues. If I found contradictory information (and there’s a lot), I usually went with the newer information as assumably correct. Note that none of this is original research – I rely completely on the information that’s out there.

The goal of this list is twofold: To compile the most comprehensive list of Lead Belly tracks available on the web, and to note which CD (or LP) you need to acquire if you want his entire issued catalogue with as little overlap as possible.

Listed under „No. / Source“ are the catalogue numbers (if existent) or the LPs / CDs that serve as a ‚original‘ source for the compilers.

Listed under „Remarks“ are the respective discographies are listed in which the song and session are noted. Also here are remarks on unresolved inconsistencies, corrected mistakes or simply uncertain information.

Besides the information in the CD-liner notes, the consulted discographies are:

Charles Wolfe & Kip Lornell: The Life & Legend of Leadbelly. New York 1992, pp. 289–322. [Wolfe/Lornell]

Robert M. W. Dixon, John Godrich & Howard W. Rye: Blues and Gospel Records 1890–1943. Oxford 1997. [Dixon/Godrich/Rye]

Leslie Fancourt & Bob McGrath: The Blues Discography 1943–1970. [No Place] 2007. [Fancourt] *[this should be listed as „Fancourt/McGrath“, but I forgot his name and right now I don’t have the heart to do the copy/paste work. Sorry to McGrath until I correct this]

John Cowley: “Take A Whiff On Me”: Leadbelly’s Library of Congress Recordings 1933-1942 — An Assessment. In: Blues & Rhythm No. 59, March-April 1991, pp. 16–20; No. 60, May 1991, pp. 18–21. (Revised version 2011). [Download a Pdf here]

I also consulted the following online discographies by private persons and offical institutes. None of them are complete and they usually use the sources above. I used them mainly to spot inconsistencies and cross-referencing information. They contain errors (as I’m sure does my list):

…keep on living… (private blog entry)

Association for Cultural Equity (ACE, custodian of the Alan Lomax Archive)

The Leadbelly Web (private blog)

Listed under „CDs (LPs)“ are the the catalogue numbers of the best CDs (and in some cases the LPs) that you need to get if you want all of Lead Belly’s published output with minor overlap. There is still going to be overlap, and some CDs only add about 2 more tracks to what you’ll already have, but that’s the way the bee bumbles.

The CDs and LPs I included are the following:

ø Pig Meat Wolfe/Lornell note „Xtra LP 1047“, this seems incorrect. They probably mean XTRA 1017 „The Leadbelly Box“ which has 2 versions of „Pig Meat“. „The Leadbelly Box“ in turn is just a combination of FA 2014 and FA 2024. The „FA 2014“ is possibly from 1935, the „FA 2024“ surely from 1947 – this track here might to be a listing mistake and inexistent or maybe identical to the take from June 1946.
