Mississippi Records Tape Series, Vol. 51 – Lullabies & Dream Songs
Includes a higher res scan of the track listing!
My eyesight is seriously impaired – does anyone have a track list? I’d be most appreciative!
Did you check the scan that comes with the DL? If you still cant read it, I’ll try and do a hig rez scan for you this weekend & up the contrast..it is actually a really bad photocopy & tuff to read..
That said this is prob. my favorite one yet!! Really lovely.
Good Night Sleep Tight.
Looking forward to this one as usual. Thanks!!
hey Holly, Try this:
this is fantastic
Thank you so much for the music,and the scan – much appreciated.
is there any way to acquire the tapes that are not on rootblog?
Mississippi Records, Portland OR.
ok, i knew that, any other way? i’m in ny
No, not that I know of. Is there a particular one you are looking for?
Oh heck. My usb drive croaked & I hadn’t yet backed this up, and now the file is “temporarily unavailable”. How temporary is temporary? ;-)
yeh. these mississippi records tapes are only available at the shop. if you aren’t in portland, or have a generous friend here, you’re pretty much SOL. sorry.. sometimes you’ll see em on Ebay going for a lot more than they sell for at the shop
i pretty much want all the ones that are not on rootblog. because i have all of those, thank you. and they’re all amazing. just listened to “What Are These Things With Big Black Wings?” so good!
hope that didnt seem too greedy. i am very thankful for all that i have enjoyed from rootblog.
There’s some early ones in the series here:
Thanks for making these available to the technologically challenged!
Some of these tapes are available Discogs or eBay sometimes.
Go by the shop if you’re in Portland!
hey, are you the person that pete gets the tapes for?
You mean SWANDOG?
Any chance we could get a new link? Megaupload has been snatched away by some pretty scary looking bald eagles. Thanks!
Hey, I’m in the same position as Nick. Any possibility of a new link pleasepleaseplease?
Link seems to be working just fine for me? Thanks for sharing all of these rad comps. Great stuff and love the artwork.
thanks as ever

I once DL this one that I love so much (I use to offer a copy at every friend wo reach parenthood ;-) )
I lost the file when I lost my laptop…
The link (to mediafire) doesn’t work anymore ; is there a chance that you upload it again (or send it by any other electronic mean to my e-mail adress)?
I would greatly appreciate to hear it again, and make it discover to my second baby daughter.
Thanks again for all your great work with these.
All the best,
Any chance of a Re-up?
this looks like magic. re-re-up?
ALSO your blog rocks! thank you!
This looks great – any chance of a re-up?
Great upload. The majority of these tracks has been released through ocora and nonesuch explorer series.
Just a small note, on side A where it reads “two unidentified Burundian girls” the title of the song is actually ‘Akazéhé par deux jeunes filles’. You can find it on the ocora release ‘Burundi : Musique du Burundi, 1967’ along with a great solo voice version.
A lot of these tracks have been extensively sampled by enigma, deep forest and Holger Czukay.
If you like this tape, try to get a hold of the ocora CD release and listen to the last track ‘chant d’ enfant accompagne d’un arc musical umuduri ‘
