EXTRA!!! Recent BARD Additions, Late January-February Edition

Here is a listing of the most recent BARD additions.  If you aren’t able to find something on this list for learning or entertainment, check back next month, or the next; something will come your way.  In the meantime, a tune many of us heard from a television comedy of the 60s, “Ballad of Gilligan’s Island” is available; how can you not smile when remembering this wacky tale of castaway adventurers?  Just a cursory glance at this list covers a wide range of tastes; from Gilligan to Simon and Garfunkel to Gershwin, Purcell and Mozart, the NLS Music Section has music for you.

(Note: All titles are one volume unless otherwise noted.)
