Zhenya early music - the pink album (50) RE: early music - the pink album 11 Aug 08


I have quite a few early music LPs at home, bought in the late 70s and early 80s, and most never released on CD. This album itself didn't ring a bell with me, but I got curious and was able to find a picture. I'll check for sure at home later to see if I by chance have it, but it still doesn't look familiar. Maybe this will click with someone else, though:

Picture of The Pink Album

(Disclaimer - I know nothing about the actual site this photo is on, which just popped up when I googled, so you'll have to research that yourself.)

As for the tunes, a lot of these tunes were recorded on many different albums. I tend to think of them like Irish session tunes, and have my favorite versions of some of them. I did study and play recorder for a few years and still like to listen to early music, but due to lack of time, I mostly play trad fiddle these days. I still hope to get back to recorder playing as well at some future time. I played classical flute and Irish tin whistle as well at various times, and I never liked either of them as much as I liked the sound of the recorder.

By the way, leeneia, I got to try a krumhorn once. I decided it must be a cross between an umbrella handle and a kazoo!
