I have been collecting folk recordings, mostly by artists from the United States and the British Isles, for about 40 years. This blog is intended to share a few of these recordings (all believed to be Public Domain under EU law where this blog originates) and make them available online for research and scholarship in accordance with the Copyright Act of 1976, 17 U.S.C. § 107. Also included are links to other interesting blogs, websites, and freely available folk audio and video.

More "Country Music" from behind the Iron Curtain... in German!
A rather strange album (and a historical document, for sure) -- conceived and recorded by state-owned Amiga in 1989, liner-notes from 1990, after the Iron Curtain had collapsed and the GDR prepared for official re-unification with West Germany....
In that respect, the last title "Ein neues Leben" (A New Life) sounds almost prophetic!
