If you're beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed by the 9500 tracks now housed in the FMA, have no fear. Curators have been compiling collections and mixes of some of their offerings to help you along.
Excavated Shellac hosts 91 digital captures of rare 78rpm records from the first quarter of the 20th century and has compiled an outstanding mix of some gems from the collection called International Association of the String, "A collection of early masterful fiddle and violin performances - including a few variations on the instrument, such as the kemence of the Black Sea, and the hardanger of Norway." Listen below to a beautiful guitar duet from pre-tango era Argentina.
And if all else fails, find that fellow FMA-er whose got your taste in music, dig their mixes, and browse through their favorite artists, albums, and tracks!
