Vocal Record Collectors' Society Annual CDs Available
Recently we have put a banner ad up on the OperaCast site advertising the availability of back issues of the Vocal Record Collectors' Society Annual CDs. The VRCS is a group of diehard vocal record mavens that meets once a month in a church hall here in Manhattan to hear a program of 20-25 vocal records, often rarities you couldn't find, let alone hear, anywhere else. Since it was started in the 1950's, the Society has issued an annual record (since the early 90's, it's been a CD) containing old 78rpm recordings that have never been released on either LP or CD. There are some pretty weird and wonderful things on these CDs. I hope you'll take a moment to look at the list of singers and the contents of each disc.
