This looks interesting. These are recordings from various modern day artists, recorded using an authentic 1930’s direct to disc 78rpm recorder. They have been recorded in unusual places such as hotels, pub, a winery even a botanical gardens. Its amazing how with a bit of old timey recording equipment the tracks give the impression of being made many years ago.Particularly true of ‘Glory Glory’ by The Wandering which is like some lost gospel recording.
Artists such as Roseanne Cash seem to gain an edge from being recorded by vintage equipment. The songs crackle with life, distort in all the right places and have a wild and lonesome feel which is not always apparent in their more hi-tech recordings. Most of the songs are traditional and artists present include Richard Thompson, Loudon Wainwright III, Valerie June, Dawn Landes, Marshall Crenshaw and many more. You can watch a video on the recordings being made at www.the78project.com.
