I do tend to catch up with things after everybody else, but in case you have not seen some of the excellent work done here, take a look.
The same project has cleaned up the Joseph Taylor phonograph recordings really quite well. I have no idea who is behind it.

OK I'll have another go to see if I can raise some interest. This collection is very important and I hope successful. There are hitherto unpublished cleaned up and digitised songs from Joseph Taylor, and also some unpublished versions of ballads from Jean Ritchie. I for one was unaware that her family had originally been visited by Cecil Sharp in 1917, until I saw these videos. Some of the song comparisons are excellent and the colorization and sound cleaning on Kennedy's film of Sam Larner and Harry Cox is a joy. Like I said it's worth a look.

Mr. Nick Dow

I am ignorant about Joseph Taylor, and know little about Jean Ritchie though I see her referenced often.

At the risk of redundancy, but for the education the newbie like myself ...

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Some background information or links, if available, please.
