Roy Harris "Champions of Folly"

I have set myself some task it seems, in an attempt to cover the TOPIC catalogue in my collection, I have now over 200 LP titles in my collection, some of these that have not yet been released on CD are already restored and digitised in my archive, I obviously could post them all, but that would take far more time than I have available, so the odd one, not previously posted will be uploaded now and then.
Starting with this classic collection of tradition folk songs from Roy Harris "Champions of Folly"

Roy Harris: Vocals
Martin Carthy: Guitar & Dulcimer
Bobby Campbell: Fiddle & Mandola
Vic Gammon: Melodeon & Concertina

Download

Enjoy.

Lucky you, to have so much from Topic! Thank you very much for this, and for whatever else from them you post.

Thank you! Do you have the Roy Harris with "Jackie Munroe" on it? That's the one I've been looking for, for a long long long time.

Bloody hell - more good stuff!

In response to the point you made in the 'Recommend' section, I for one appreciate the effort you put in to clean up some of these albums. I've done it myself on a few occasions and I know what a fiddly, time consuming, frustrating business it is. It's not a criticism of the original poster - some people just don't have the time or technology to do it. If you think any of my posts would benefit, you go ahead mate!

And again - very nice post.

Yes indeed, but its on Fellside, not topic, and not owned by me, however a friend has passed a copy to me at 160k, so its not up to my usual standard, although I have removed a few nasties from it, it is listenable.

Will post as soon as I can get to check it all..
