The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

Once again prepare to be charmed by a motley collection of Polkas, popular tunes and everything in between, all glittering in a tinsel of scales, arpeggios, octaves and chords. Philip Martin’s playing of this repertoire now needs no introduction; suffice to say he still plays as well now as he did in the previous seven volumes.
