Excavated Shellac - Reeds cd (Dust To Digital)


This compelling album is the second volume in the Excavated Shellac release series, featuring rare, never-before issued 78rpm records from around the world, centered on a unique theme. The previous volume (Excavated Shellac: Strings) focused on stellar stringed instrument performances. This release examines some of the most intense and hypnotic music set to disc during the early years of international recording, all featuring reed instruments. All previously unreleased on CD, with three bonus tracks not available on the newly-released vinyl LP. All records have been carefully transferred and mastered and are presented with extensive liner notes by Jonathan Ward.

“Jon Ward’s Excavated Shellac focuses on ethnic music on 78’s. He’s one of the smartest obsessive record collectors I know, and the stuff he posts I would gladly pay to download…it is always stuff you would never hear anywhere else, nothing here on CD. This is the rarest of the rare and the best of the best. Stellar!” – Steve Roden, Wire Magazine’s Web Exclusive

“Featuring Ward’s informative notes and commentary…(Excavated Shellac is) an astounding selection of music from India, Ireland, Turkey, Burma, Poland, Africa, Japan, Spain, the US, and more…rare treats.” – Susanna Bolle, The Boston Phoenix
