Date Issued:18 May 2016
Description:Label says Creole 3. Tape contains two tracks: 1 (file name DB2-005-A) and 2 (file name DB2-005-B). Together the tracks contain interviews from multiple sessions with various subjects about a range of topics: On track 1, Bickerton explains to one subject that he looking to record stories from the old times. Multiple speakers, but no names given. At least two unnamed co-interviewers as well. Topics include driving routes, travel coordination, traditional stories (at least two are recorded here), and several songs. Tape is generally of very good quality, but there is some sporadic distortion, tape-skipping sounds, and noise from jostling the microphone. Intermittent noise from background conversation, children, and chickens. Tape was digitized at a sample rate of 192,000Hz, but then had to be re-sampled to 163,200Hz to achieve the proper playback speed.
