The 78 Project: Vol. 1 on LP

Vinyl LP-only release. The 78 Project is a documentary journey across America that records today's musicians as they perform the songs that inspired a century of music exactly as those works were originally recorded: instantaneously onto 78 RPM lacquer discs. Inspired by folklorist Alan Lomax, the 78 Project celebrates the artistry and craft that captured America's musical forms of a century ago, exploring the deep historical significance of American Folk songs in the process. With just one microphone, one authentic 1930s Presto recorder, and one blank acetate disc, musicians are given a single, three-minute take to cut a 78 RPM record, finding in that adventure a new connection to our cultural legacy. Includes tracks from Richard Thompson, Roseanne Cash with John Leventhal, Loudon Wainwright, Joe Henry & Lisa Hannigan, the Wandering and many others.
