A few months ago I was browsing a local record shop. Now I don't mean a local music shop, I mean record shop. not a CD to be found. Racks and racks of 12", 7", and 10" discs of analog aural awesome. Anyway, in the folk section, I found a near mint copy of Ruby Murray Endearing Young Charms. I've been curious about Celtic music from the early 20th Century. I've been curious about the treatments for these tunes from the birth of recording through the 70's, so I picked it up. Now, to be sure, the sound is a bit dated, but there's a really beautiful voice on this record and I rather enjoy listening to it smile.gif I don't think I'd recommend it for a modern introduction to Celtic music. Yet it's really a nice change, and a beautiful recording.

I haven't heard of Ruby Murray. But it seems that we do have a tendancy to completely disregard some of the wonderful art and music of the past, for all the insessant releases of the present. Thanks for the thought provoking post!
