Sample of a busker playing the accordion in a Pamplona side-street in 1985. Recorded with a Sony Walkman using the in-built mics. Some background talking. Recorded onto TDK D90 cassette and stored since then in damp cellars, sheds, and long forgotten drawers. Just today transferred to digital using my fathers old Decca Legato tape player which we purchased in the early 70s to enable us to send messages to my uncle who had emigrated to Australia. Dad says the player cost over £30 then which was more than a weeks wages at the time.
I was Inter-railing around Europe at the time but the recording seems to stop in Pamplona. Six weeks later all my money and passport was stolen while in Crete and I made my way home via the British Consulate in Athens.
