Periodically, I search the internet to see if stuff I used to love has been digitized.
Back in the 1980’s, I bought an album by a French-Canadian folk band named Barde. The album was from the late 70’s, and I’m pretty sure I bought it as used record shop I used to frequent in Williamsville, New York.
It was great, mostly instrumental, Celtic-style stuff.
Back in the 80’s, I copied the album to a tape. And sometime in the mid-oughties I digitized the tape. Over the years I’ve looked for Barde on the internet, and found nothing.
This summer I’ve gotten out my LP’s. It’s time to digitize (the ones I never replaced with a CD) the right way.
So I googled Barde.
And up popped a Wikipedia page (translated from French), a video on YouTube, and links to contraband.
This is “Kid On the Mountain”, the first track on the album Images. I’d have preferred “The Kerry Huntsman” but beggars can’t be choosers.
Ain’t the internet great?
