Chris Timson Posted March 17, 2009 Share Posted March 17, 2009 Hi all, You may or may not know about these already, but there used to be a magazine called Concertina & Squeezebox. Long defunct, it was a joy in its time and inspired a lot of loyalty in its readers, so much so that when the editor requested musical contributions from readers for fund raising tapes he was able, over time, to put together four such tapes. Ed Delaney recently did a lot of work digitised the tapes and put them on the web, but because of the size of the collection he is no longer able to keep them online. This is where the ICA comes in. We have agreed to give the collection a new home on our web site. The collection is open to everyone, not just ICA members of course. The address is:- www.concertina.org/sound_archive/sound_archive_frame.htm (Click on the C & S Readers' Tapes link on the left hand side). There is some cracking music there, some from people no longer with us like Hugh Blake and Pat Robson. Go and enjoy yourselves and have a listen. The quality is not always that good - we are talking about home-made cassettes after all - but the music can be superb. Chris PS Actually the size of the collection is such that in order to house it all we had to call on the help of another web site. Can I publicly thank the webmaster of the Concertina FAQ website for making available some 280 Mb of space on his web site to house some of the files (well OK, that webmaster is me, but I rather fancied the idea of thanking myself ...)
