The Telegram: Digitization of long out-of-print Newfoundland traditional music creates permanent record. “A light thump and/or slight crackle are often the first sounds heard when ‘Play’ is pressed for audio files on the Bandcamp page Kelly Russell established for his production company, Pigeon Inlet Productions. It’s an odd noise to hear on a WAV file or MP3. But there’s a reason. Russell recently uploaded his out-of-print vinyl collection to the internet as a way to preserve the songs, jigs, reels and recitations he had carved into wax beginning 42 years ago.”
