    Interesting record. Medieval Music is (oddly enough), the future of all music. There is a huge come-back of these long-forgotten sounds by the avid musicionados.
    Thanks, Nick.

    Am I right in thinking that A1 and B1 are missing from the collection?

  3. nicholab says:

    Jampony You know. I’ve remained puzzled about that, myself. Everything on the LP is included with the upload. The tracklisting is transcribed as listed, but hen I seperated tracks according to the bands on the LP itself, its didn’t make sense. Not sure whether its some kind of manufacturer defect, but, hard to say….All the music is there, is all I really know.

    nicholab Jampony They must be hidden in some sort of celestial frequency. Nevertheless this is magical, thanks for uploading!

    It appears that this is from 1965.
    Here is the LOC listing: http://lccn.loc.gov/r65002685

    Hi Nicholab…..
    I’m not sure if you realise that the first track features you dropping the stylus onto the record 4 times…..false starts if you like.  You might want to retry and re-upload?
    A beautiful record anyway.  Many thanks!

  7. Oh no! Really? I’ll put a fix in for that ASAP. FYI, I love this record, but it was a real pain to edit bc of all the tracks, and the apparent track discrepancy between the cover notes and the vinyl itself. Distracted me, I guess. Anyway, apologies. On it…

    prmarlow Just reuploaded the rips with the first track’s needle/re-starts fixed. Thanks again for the heads up! And tuxut Many thanks for pinning down the date!

  9. Jampony says:

    nicholab Am I missing the correct link? The zip still hasn’t included them 🙂

  10. prmarlow says:

    Many thanks Nicholab, all fine now.  Lovely peaceful music indeed.

    This brings back such memories…! I purchased it when it first came out, and still have it with so many other LPs. A ton of research has been done since then, and since so much else has appeared in the 1970s and 1980s, but I think this disc holds up well. It’s also great fun to listen to.
