The FOLK Recordings

Part of the fun in collecting, and in trying to research the music itself, is the pleasure in coming across something that had hitherto not been documented. Stumbling across a copy of the six track 78rpm extend play disc shown below, certainly caused some degree of excitement. Of course that delight is tempered by the thought that if this is issue number 502, then what on earth is 501, another selection of recordings by Chuck Harding and ensemble? The material is of course covers of contemporary hits of the day, which would have placed the record it sometime around the end of 1953. You will note from the label scans that Oneda Hardings Christian name was misspelled on the label as Onedia!

Please note: Unfortunately "Secret Love" skips a few grooves so is not included amongst the audio tracks
