Listen to the Band - 2 CD Set

Price: $15.00
In Stock: 11

Dance Music from the EFDSS Sound Archives Vol. 1 - unlocking the treasures of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library. This 2-CD set is a chronological compilation of commercial recording covering the first two periods of English folk dancing revival – from the beginnings at the start of the 20th century through the early/mid 1960s – which span the whole of the era of 78rpm shellac records. Only bands and orchestras, apart from one piano solo, are included. The recordings have been taken from the unique collection in the sound archives of the Vaugh Williams Memorial Library located in the Cecil Sharp House, home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society. This almost complete collection of 78 rpm commercial English folk dance recording contains over 700 recorded tracks.
