Various Artists: Sprigs Of Time: 78s From The EMI Archive [2 VINYL LPs] (Honest Jon's Records)
Label: Honest Jon's Records    
Released in: UK    

This is the third in Honest Jon's series of albums exploring the earliest 78s held in the EMI Hayes Archive. 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. The result this time: Thirty amazing tracks recorded between 1903 and 1957, everywhere from England - Percy Grainger's recording of the title song in 1908 - to the court of the Japanese emperor five years earlier, the stunning Segaiha. Organ rolls from Georgia run alongside Tamils impersonating motorized transport and rumba from Beirut, vintage fado alongside the songs of Bengali beggars - with celebrated names dotting the mix, like Joseph Taylor, Fairuz, the Mighty Sparrow, and an uncredited Ruben Gonzalez."-Honest Jon's Records
