VariousArt Of Field Recording Volume 1 – 50 Years Of Traditional American Music (4CD box set & book) ... CD
Dust To Digital, 1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. Used 4 CDs ... $69.99
Beautiful field recordings of American folk, blues, gospel, and more – the epic, truly wonderful Art Of Field Recording Vol 2 – collected by Art Rosenbaum in the Harry Smith tradition! It's impossible to get around the Harry Smith comparison for a box of treasures like this, but it's especially apt, given that must be one of the best of it's kind since the 90s reissues of Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music. Rosenbaum has been recording traditional music from the south and around the US for half century himself – and Volume 2 if what we can only hope will be an ongoing series captures spirituals, gospel, blues, bluegrass, fiddle tunes, vocal tunes, guitar tunes, lonely homespun balladry, and lots more – much of it from the 60s, 70s & 80s and some earlier and more recent recordings. It couldn't be more exciting that the traditions of non-professional, home based American folk music have survived all this time, and it's just as wonderful that Rosenbaum has been there to document it. More than 100 songs on 4 CDs, with a thick, beautiful, well researched and illustrated book – with notes on each of the tracks, and tons of photographs. Essential!!! CD
(Out of print – and a lot harder to find than volume 2!)

VariousListen All Around – The Golden Age of Central and East African Music (2CDs & hardcover book – with bonus download) ... CD
Dust To Digital, 1950s. New Copy 2CD & Book ... $28.99
A wonderfully beautiful package – filled with gems from the central African scene of the 50s – all packaged together with a huge book of notes that's as wonderful as the music itself! The set culls together vintage singles from the Congo, Tanganyika, Zanzibar, and Kenya – not as random rare records, but instead to showcase some fantastic musical trends that were taking place in African music during the postwar years – particularly as influences from the Caribbean were starting to hit those shores in the form of imported phonograph records. Many of these tracks showcase some fantastic acoustic guitar work along with a very hypnotic singer – while others show maybe the beginning of the Cuban influence that would come into the fold even more during the 60s – and as usual with Dust-To-Digital, the book-like presentation is as much of a history lesson and travelogue as it is a treasure trove of music. 47 tracks in all – presented beautifully!

Dust To Digital, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD, DVD & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really fantastic little package – one that presents a key look at the farther reaches of Mississippi in the 60s, 70s, and 80s – served up in rare photographs, essays, readings, films, and a great batch of music all collected by William Ferris! Starting in the mid 60s, Ferris sought to document the disappearing scene around him – and emerged as almost a one-man version of Smithsonian/Folkways – as you'll discover in this fantastic box, which includes 1 DVD of film footage, plus a CD of rare blues, another CD of gospel, and a third CD featuring interviews and stories from Alex Haley, Barry Hannah, Bobby Rush, Shelby "Poppa Jazz" Brown, James "Son Ford" Thomas, BB King, Ray Lum, Pecolia Warner, and others! As usual with Dust-To-Digital, the whole package is beautiful – and includes a fabric-covered box with a heavy, hardcover book that features rare photos by Ferris, plus writings by Scott Barretta, David Evans, and Tom Rankin. Music is by James "Son Ford" Thomas, Lovey Williams, Scott Dunbar, Tom Dumas, Lovey Williams, Sam Myers, Sonny Boy Watson, Mississippi Fred McDowell, James Hughes, Rose Hill Church, Walter Lee Hood, Fannie Bell Chapman, The Southland Hummingbirds, and many more!

✨✧ Gareth MurphyCowboys & Indies – The Epic History Of The Record Industry (hardcover) ... Book
Thomas Dunne, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly wide-ranging look at the world of recorded music – one that traces the record business from its earliest days, through its rise in the 20th Century, to its shifts and transformations at the start of the digital generation! Gareth Murphy takes on a whole lot of territory here – both American icons of recording, and lots of forces that made things happen overseas – from very early use of recording devices in the 19th century, to pioneering record labels and producers, to the kinds of mavericks who always kept things interesting – including important figures like Chris Blackwell, Sylvia Robinson, Sam Phillips, and John Hammond! The book is hardcover, almost 400 pages, and has some black and white images. Book
