The perfect introduction to Topic Records, the world's oldest surviving independent record label, The Real Sound of Folk Music is a 2LP set featuring 20 specially selected tracks from the labels vast catalog. The story of Topic is synonymous with the growth of folk as a musical and social movement in Britain and these recordings demonstrate the bridge between modern music and a traditional art form. On this collection you will find some of the most remarkable singers, songs and tunes – either drawn directly from the tradition or inspired by it. Many of the tracks deal with social issues of the time and there are also re-workings of great traditional story songs like Anne Briggs' "Blackwater Side," Nic Jones' "Canadee-i-o" and majestic performances by Martin Simpson, Shirley Collins, Davy Graham, Martin Carthy, Eliza Carthy and The Watersons. Topic also offers up a June Tabor and Oysterband cover version of Joy Divisions classic "Love Will Tear Us Apart." The list goes on. The Real Sound of Folk Music is a fulfilling and haunting introduction to the great legacy of the folk tradition and Topic Records.
