Subject: RE: Cornucopia of 1960's Brit. Folk
Folkweaves with Tony Capstick galore. The Beeb at Radio Manchester junked all the masters into a skip out back. We know this because a folkie found them, rescued them, and digitised them. But then he faded from the scene. The link is to a set that are now unique survivors. 1.5GB worth.
Genome will tell you whose on them.
They have been digitised at 128kbps. They may have to be redone at 192kbps. But this will take time.
Most suffer from a cassette turnover event after about 45 mins (likely during Tony Foxworthy's folk events round ups).
