Product Description

The widely acclaimed VOICE Of The PEOPLE series continues with four further volumes of the finest Traditional Song, edited by Dr Reg Hall and compiled by some of the foremost folksong experts. Rod Stradling was invited to select and present his choice of material for this volume. A singer and musician himself with over four decades of experience, he has associated regularly with countless traditional singers and musicians and for many years he played the melodeon in the Bampton Morris. Sarah Makem has been widely regarded as one of the finest Irish singers of Traditional song. This collection has been carefully compiled from classic recordings made in the 1950s and 60s. Rod Stradling carefully hunted out sound recordings that would have otherwise remained in obscurity and for providing a wealth of biographical material. Jewel case with 58 page booklet and slipcase

An Important Voice 15 Nov 2014
By Wallypn - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is not a disk that's going to be in my player a lot--a single unaccompanied singer with recording quality not all that great. But it is important from the standpoint of the origins of "traditional" Irish songs, their meaning, and influence. I can hear Tommy, Rory, Tom & Jimmy Sweeney here, along with dozens of others influenced by this important voice. It should be in the library of any serious collector.
