cd cover Various Artists
Longing for the Past: The 78 rpm Era in Southeast Asia (Dust-to-Digital)
272-page hardcover book with 4 CDs in beautiful, embossed slip case
cdRoots Code: fe-dtd028

An amazing collection of music and reading. It is is the first survey of the 78 rpm record era in Southeast Asia, to my knowledge. This boxed set features 4 CDs with 90 tracks of music spanning six decades (1905-1966), and a 272-page book with essays and annotations by leading ethnomusicologists that is amazingly illustrated with more than 250 vintage photographs, record labels, and sleeves. In the age of the download, this is the proof that real, in-your-hands music and books are still not only important, but rewarding to the extreme.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
