Sprigs Of Time
78s From The EMI Archive
HONEST JON'S RECORDS
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.
