When Moe Asch gave his entire Folkways catalog to the Smithsonian, he insisted they promise to keep all the records available.  That seemed like a big deal at the time, but now they are all available as downloads or as print-on-demand CDs.  And you can also get the liner notes in a pdf.  Here are the liner notes to the Paul Clayton album.

That's a really good album. I wore out the vinyl version.

Folk musician, Paul Clayton, was one of the early trailblazers of the dulcimer revival in the 1950s and 1960s.  If I have my facts correct and don't have him confused with someone else, he visited the home of dulcimer maker, Edd Presnell, and his wife, Nettie Hicks Presnell in the 1950s to learn traditional dulcimer-playing directly from Nettie.

I recently bought this cd of Mr Clayton playing "Southern Mountain Dulcimer" and singing, too.  Today, I listened to it on my car stereo-- the best stereo we have-- and liked it lots!
