Mick Moloney Irish-American Music and Popular Culture Collection, Part I: Commercial Recordings Bulk, 1910-1979 c.1903-c.1999 (Bulk, c.1910-c.1979)

The Mick Moloney Irish-American Music and Popular Culture Collection in the Archives of Irish America at the Tamiment Library, New York University constitutes an aurally and visually rich resource for scholars and students of the Irish-American experience. Sound recordings on disc make up Part I of this collection, including thousands of 78 RPM records, hundreds of 33 1/3 RPM LPs a small collection of 45 RPM records and several hundred cassettes collected by Mick Moloney over the course of four decades. The records document nearly a century of Irish and Irish-American music in all its permutations from Tin Pan Alley through the folk revival and beyond. While the majority of the discs are commercial recordings of Irish music released on American labels, Part I also contains a sizeable number of releases on Irish, English and Scottish labels representing both Irish music and closely related musical traditions in those countries. A small number of non-commercial acetates and privately made recordings are also found in the series.
