The Grundig Tapes Volume 2

Extracted from the very many reels of tapes that were recorded on the faithful Grundig tape recorder, this further collection includes early efforts at home, as well as radio recordings taken from 'Folk Club' and other shows featuring the Northern Dance Orchestra (NDO). The technical and performance quality is highly variable, but the range of music, influenced by 'black' culture, rock, folk, and emerging new musicians, including The Beatles, demonstrates the explosive creativity that epitomised the sixties.
