(VA) Greek Rhapsody: Instrumental Music from Greece 1905-1956 (Dust-to-Digital)
Instanbul, 1913. "Asia Minor" Greeks from Instanbul brought the laterna to popular music of the time in Greece. The laterna is a keyboardless piano, a handcranked thing w/ a rotating wood cylinder w/ nails in it. As it turns, the nails trigger the piano hammers. Like a music box. Cool. You should see the ornate one pictured in the liner notes.

Reissue of 1975 LP. Trio of versions of this spiritual combined in one album track. The middle one was recorded 40 years ago today! It features a Clorox bottle, lard bucket & empty pot for percussion, plus a "diddley bow." A What??!? It's a piece of broom wire stretched between two staples on a wall with two snuff bottles under it for bridges. Mr. Faulkner plays it by beating on it w/ a nail and sliding a medicine bottle along the strings. It's thought to be an adaptation of an African children's instrument, and a source of bottleneck and knife guitar playing.
