You can tell the world about this





Today i'd like to post a rare record, from a label called Morning Star Records, which was operated by Richard Nevins, also founder of Shanachie Records. Nevins is also a record collector and operated the wonderful reissue compilations of vintage recordings on Yazoo. The Morning Star label was created in the 80's and released only a few records. I'm lucky to have found one on ebay wich is called "You can tell the world about this" , a wonderful compilation of ethnic recordings from the 20's and 30's. Ten years later Yazoo Records would release on cd five volumes of vintage ethnic recordings selected by Pat Conte called "The secret museum of mankind". A few of the tracks on the lp would reappear on the cds but the rest is another bunch of unique 78rpm records from around the world.

I typed the address straight in to the address bar and it went to Mediafire.
I don't know what's up with the link and my computer.
But I got there

Thanks

morning star was founded in the 70s and shanachie was founded by Rich Nevins and Dan Collins. Rich was a speacialist of old time fiddle and Dan was speacialist of trad. irish fiddle music.Together they formed shanachie from an apt. in the bronx, NY. where i grew up. Nick Perls founder of yazoo , passed on his co. to him in his last years for a humble price i believe.
