This is the FIRST post to my blog:
Some information about me and what I do:
I've been a closet Folker & Jazzer for more years than I care to disclose. With the advent of computers, I became an IT person, naturally using computers to create or to edit music was the next major event. I am currently restoring early folk music vinyl discs to preserve the music and keep it in a digital form.
This restoration work is time consuming, complex but very rewarding, I make some of my work available both on file sharing systems, and on blogs, as I believe that music must be spread to survive and the more that can enjoy it, the more it will grow.
There are many hundreds of recordings available that will NEVER see the digital light of day and be released on CD for the mass market, these out of print recordings stand little chance of ever seeing a return to popularity and often exist only in the memory of the listener, having long gone out of the limelight.
If my restoration work helps a few of these gems back into circulation, them my efforts will be worthwhile to more than just myself and my listening enjoyment.
My first post will be out of the normal, being a video of the COPPER FAMILY who did and are still doing a marvelous job in keeping traditional songs alive.
