Thread Name: Folk-Legacy Custom CD's
Subject: Folk-Legacy Custom CD's
I hinted about it in the Sharon Mountain Harmony thread, but I didn't want to spread the news until Sandy Paton 'fessed up to it. He did, later in the Sharon Mountain thread.
Sandy and his son David Paton have been working for almost a year, remastering many of the recordings that Folk-Legacy records issued in the years before CD's came into use. Now, those wonderful recordings will be available on CD. I got a box of 26 CD's last week, and my wife and I have had a great time listening to all of them. There are CD's from Mudcatters "Captain" Kendall Morse and Jerry Rasmussen, and from Ed Trickett, Sara Grey, Joe Hickerson, Cathy Barton & Dave Para, Michael Cooney, Rosalie Sorrels, and Helen Boncheck Schneyer. There's a two-disc set of the traditional music of Beech Mountain, NC, and traditional recordings from Ray Hicks (Jack Tales), Lawrence Older (Adirondack songs), Grant Rogers (Catskills), and Norman Kennedy (Scotland). That's a start - there are others I didn't list.

I'm hoping Sandy will post the entire list of what's available. If he doesn't, I will. You can order these wonderful recordings from Folk-Legacy Records, 1-800-836-0901
The CD's aren't listed on the Folk-Legacy Website yet, but you can get a general idea what will be available by checking their Custom Cassette page (click) and (click) (not all of the cassettes are available on CD). You can order by phone or e-mail.

Thanks, Sandy and Caroline, for all the wonderful music you've given us over the years.
