Oxford American is an acclaimed national magazine dedicated to featuring the very best in Southern writing, while documenting the complexity and vitality of the American South. The music issue is a collector’s item and each issue includes a sampler compilation of songs spanning the 78-rpm era to the present (in CD and digital download formats).
