Overview

Voice of the People: A Selection features a track from each volume in Topic's 20-record collection of English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh traditional music. Like a U.K. version of Harry Smith's massive Anthology of American Folk Music, this project relies heavily on field recordings and offerings from private collections. Most of the cuts are sparse affairs with little or no accompaniment, but the recordings themselves are clear and precise and feature some true heavyweights of the era such as Harry Cox, Sam Larner and Sarah Makem.
