V.A. "The Folk Collection" 1999
CD Rip@192





















Topic Records were obviously unable to come up with an imaginative title when they released this collection of folk songs in 1999. There are 38 tracks all of which had been on albums released by Topic Records over the decades.
As you will see if you check out the track list graphic, this set mainly includes English and Scottish artists and songs.
We would probably find that many of these tracks have already been included in albums listed here and there is probably little here that would interest an established folkie.
However, others may find this to be an excellent sampler ideal for those who are becoming interested in British folk music and would like to sample some of the prominent earlier artists of the genre. Further, the booklet gives a little information on each of the artists, the songs and the particular albums the tracks originally appeared on.
There is a lot of music on these CDs and, even at only 192Kbs, each CD comes very close to the 100Mb limit and the booklet increases the total to over 200Mb.
Rather than uploading the whole as 3 parts, I have made individual files for each CD and the booklet as this gives greater choice and flexibility for downloaders.
