the sound of shellac - wayfaring strangers

norwegian folk musician and 78 rpm record archivist c. strom has released another collection of tape recorded 78's on his 'sound of shellac' bandcamp page. i love this eclectic collection of recordings of's old fashioned and post-modern at the same time.

this installment, called 'wayfaring strangers', has music from all over the world, from the turn of the century to the 1950's. there are few names americans might find familiar, such as paul robeson and burl ives, and plenty of surprises too. it's a musical trip through time and space. i really enjoy 'the freight wreck at altoona' and 'the gambler's dying words', both from the 1920's.

name your price for it here.
