Musical Traditions of Portugal

This fine though slightly eccentric collection ranges from frame-drum-backed rural dances and songs to Coimbra-style guitarra portuguesa instrumentals, with several cuts in the rancho folclórico revivalist tradition. There's no vocal fado, nor (more of an omission) guitar-backed rural music. The extremely thorough and well-done notes come in a 78-page booklet. ~ John
