In 1963 The English Folk Dance and Song Society released an LP of unaccompanied singing that has since had a tremendous influence on the folk song revivals of Britain, Ireland, and The United States. The album collected together a number of recordings of Bob and Ron Copper of Rottingdean in Sussex, recordings made by the renowned folksong collector Peter Kennedy during the late 1950s. The Copper family can trace their roots in traditional song back at least 200 years. Their rare southern English harmony is presented at its most outstanding in these classic performances from the 1950s and early '60s. To celebrate the 2015 centenary of Bob Copper's birth, Fledg'ling Records present the first reissue of this seminal album. The package recreates all the original artwork and Bob Copper's complete sleevenotes (as well as the original shortened version of the essay).
