Tony Schwartz: City Pitchmen

From his album, Millions of Musicians (Folkways Records, 1954).  Mr Schwartz wandered around recording audio on the street, like a birdwatcher.  Here's an example of some of the more colorful species.

Vladimir Ussachevsky: Wireless Fantasy

Late-nite radio collage stuff, suitable for solo play or any kind of mix.  The orchestral excerpt is from Wagner's Prelude to Act 1 of Parsifal.

Frog Pond

Also previously on the site.  Not sure why they were all taken off a few years ago-- maybe I was thinking of putting them on Bandcamp.  Anyway, it's here now, to stay, probably.  Includes the famous Frog Pond recording, and I think a Folkways Records collection of deep-sea critters, and a little piece of Ussachevsky's Wireless Fantasy, which deserves to be here all by itself.  Maybe in our mid-week "other artist" slot.
