about

24-track, 70-minute, digital-only collection of recordings ca. 1909-1929 that were transferred for possible inclusion on the Tompkins Square Records 3CD set To What Strange Place: the Music of the Ottoman-American Diaspora, 1916-30, but were. for one reason or another, not.

The first 19 recordings were made in New York City or across the river in northern New Jersey by Arab, Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek immigrants. The last 5 tracks were made in present-day Greece, Bulgaria, and Turkey and imported physical or issued domestically in the U.S. for the immigrant market.

Track titles are all listed here as given (in their often mangled form) on the original disc labels.

Compiled January, 2012 and originally released as a limited CDR. Tracks are only lightly restored.
