Aimer et Perdre - To Love & To Lose Songs

Aimer Et Perdre: To Love & Lose Songs 1917-1934

Want an unusual Valentines gift for the music lover in your house? This would be hard to beat. This is truly one from the heart. The unique pre-war music of the Cajun
bayous, the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine and Poland, and the American rural countryside has been collected to narrate the human odyssey of love gained and love lost. Early songs of unbridled anticipation and desperate longing color the canvas of love, courtship, dejection and marriage... a never-ending cycle. The accompanying 60-page booklet features many rare, previously unpublished images and comprehensive lyrical translation. Three original artworks by Robert Crumb provide a backdrop for these sublime songs of passion and despair. Respectfully crafted by Christopher King and Susan Archie for Tompkins Square. 36 Songs on 2CDs. Pre order it now at Amazon.

Tompkins Square specializes in folk and ethnic music as well as period specific music collected from the history of the U.S. and other country’s from around the world.
