the book is still available, though the full text will eventually also be available in the booklets accompanying what will be 4 separate volumes of 9 CDs (which will supposedly be issued over the next year or so) - I'm unable, right now, to list the tracks but will try to put something together - a lot of the sound on the early (pre-1920) recordings is rough, but sources were difficult to find and resources limited - however, I do think this is the best of its kind in its examination of the early origins of jazz and pre-jazz forms - of course, I am biased -

Will the sound quality be of the nature of the Revenant American Primitives releases? or the Harry Smith Anthology?

I would describe it as in-between - some of these recordings are 110 years old - original sources were difficult to find and often quite weak - however, though de-noising was done, we were careful to leave the music - and I was able to come up with a track list:
