SKU 23-TSCD 674
“This is an anthology of folk songs produced by Topic Records containing recordings of traditional singers and musicians from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The traditional singers and musicians were celebrities within their own community but the majority were unknown to the world at large until the 1950s and 60s when collectors arrived with portable tape recorders. A few of them recorded enough material for an entire album, [but] most are only known for a couple of songs.
In a few cases the singers used song books or ballad sheets to supplement their repertoire, but in most cases their versions are from oral tradition. This collection is the UK equivalent of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music.”-Wikipedia

“The first complete CD devoted to the influential Northern Irish Traditional singer Sarah Makem. The Heart Is True is selected and presented by Rod Stradling from classic recordings made in the 1950s and 1960s.”
