Subject: RE: info about Paul Clayton??
Smithsonian Folkways has always had cassettes available of all of the recordings from the old Folkways catalogue. I haven't ordered any because I've never been happy with the durability and sound quality of commercially-produced cassettes. Now I see that you can get all the Folkways recordings on CD, for twenty bucks a disc (can't recall what they charge for shipping). Has anybody here gotten one of these custom-made Folkways CD's, and can you tell me what you think of the quality? I don't mean the regular CD reissues they've come out with - I have several of those, and I'm very happy with them. What I'm interested in are the new CD's that they make up for you on request. Twenty bucks for a custom CD sounds too good to be true.
