GUEST,CJB Cornucopia of 1960's Brit. Folk (112* d) RE: Cornucopia of 1960's Brit. Folk 25 Feb 17


What do we do with our rare and unique recordings that even the Beeb doesn't have or more worryingly doesn't even want? Kaleidoscope only wants lost or missing or wiped t.v. programmes. No-one but no-one wants 'folk.'

But there was a case recently. We found a 'Folk on 2' from the 1970s(?) - not a good recording but listenable to - featuring the late Barry Skinner and one Rosemary H. We couldn't trace Barry Skiner's family, but Rosemary H. had a good website. We emailed her. We said that she could have a copy of said recordng. We uploaded the recording and sent her the link. Quuite rightly - when all said and done - she is very particular about who sings her songs using her arrangements. They are special. And she said that she didn't want the link to be made public. That was OK; so only she had the link. When I checked the download stats. over 70 had downloaded the recording!!!
