The Widow's Joy with a cover by Mississippi Records' E. Isaacson features the music that helped immigrant coal workers and laborers from the Austro-Hungarian region of Europe and moved to Illinois, Ohio, and Pennsylvania to work, live, and dance. Built on the backs of these workers, America has forgotten a large part of their musical culture, which has been overshadowed by more indigenous musical forms like blues, jazz, gospel, and folk musics from Appalachia. In a bid not to supplant these rich musics, but to add more to the story, Nagoski has tirelessly scoured huge collections of seemingly lost and forgotten 78 rpm records to rediscover and bring to light lost cultural gems like those found on The Widow's Joy and his recent smashing success, To What Strange Place: The Music of the Ottoman-American Diaspora 1916-1929. But, ultimately, this is a party record; the kind of music you can't help smiling along with. The Widow's Joy is the guilty pleasure without the guilt, musical research that doubles as drinking music. After all, it took a lot of good times to make someone forget a 14 hour shift in a coal mine, and the music on this LP starts at a good time and goes up from there.
