Sprigs Of Time - 78s From The Emi Archive

Honest Jon’s Recordings
2XLP $22.25

11/17/2008

HJR 036 


Honest Jon's has spent the last two years delving through more than 150,000 78 records in the temperature-controlled steel vaults of EMI's Archive in Hayes, Middlesex. Following studious compilations of West African and Iraqi music of the 1920s, the latest release in the Honest Jon's Hayes Archive series is a sparkling late-summer lucky dip, Sprigs of Time. An eccentric survey of the Hayes shelves, Sprigs of Time is thirty tracks recorded between 1903 and 1957, everywhere from England to Japan. Organ rolls from Georgia run alongside Tamils impersonating motorized transport, and rumba from Beirut; forties fado sits next to the songs of Bengali beggars. As with the other Hayes releases, the tracks have been restored at Abbey Road and are beautifully presented, with extensive contemporary photographs.
