Four tapes are apparently dubs made from the phonograph records in this collection. The Sebastian and Mirodan recordings were made in May 1970. (Gift of the Kostas Kazazis estate to the LLA on January 28, 2003)
Eric Hamp and a number of other researchers conduct sessions eliciting Vlach vocabulary from a number of (male) consultants. Miscellaneous musical passages are also interspersed among the interviews. All these samples were collected in the region of Epirus around New Year's 1960-61.
Collection Technical Notes:
Master is an extensive collection of dubs from other sources. In many of the recordings Margot Hamp appears to have been the operator of the tape recorder. The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
