A collection of songs by Southern English Traditional singers.

You Never Heard So Sweet is selected and presented by Shirley Collins from classic field recordings made in the 1950s by Peter Kennedy and Bob Copper.
Series Editor – Reg Hall.

“Courtesy of another goldmine of 1950s field recordings salvaged largely from the late collector Peter Kennedy’s archive, Reg Hall, Shirley Collins, Steve Roud and Rod Stradling have compiled a cracking new series with detailed, illuminating booklets shining a revelatory light on Britain and Ireland’s ‘old music’. Hopefully it will inspire future generations.” ★★★★ Colin Irwin, MOJO
