Various Artists – Ecstatic & Wingless: Bird​-​Imitation on Four Continents, ca. 1910​-​40

It’s Saturday & time for our weird-saturday-bandcamp-findings!

Oh my, today we feature one of the weirdest albums we’ve ever recommended & yet, for my opinion, it is a classic must-have: a recorded archive of bird impressions [by humans, of course] from the early 20th century!
here’s some more info taken from the Bandcamp page:
“45 minutes of commercial early 20th century recordings of human beings imitating birds, a practice probably pre-dating anything resembling music or language, from France, India, Australia, and the United States.”
