Do you enjoy rootling around in charity shops, or second had record shops? If so British Library Sound Archive is probably for you, though I should warn you, that it is one of those sites where you can waste a lot of time. Some recordings are copyrighted and only available for academic purposes, but most of it appears to be available to everyone. There is a great range of material there from the sublime to the quite bizarre, for example Tolkein at the tobacconists, or the pdfs of some early record catalogues.

It looks like it's UK only.

Even when I tick the public-domain-only box, every search result leads to a page that says...

"Due to copyright restrictions this recording is only available to users in the United Kingdom."

Oh sorry everyone, I didn't realise.

Calli - no need to apologise, being from 'Oop North' I am able to access the recordings and I have to say a big thank you.

I often mooch about on the BL website but I have never noticed the link to the sound archive...as many toothless old villagers strangling traditional songs as you could possibly wish for!

Fabulous! [Applause] [Applause] [Applause]
