PRE ORDER ONLY - Released on 23rd November

This 2CD set is a compilation of original field recordings made by David Attenborough between 1954 and 1963. He travelled to remote parts of the world to find and film exotic animals for the BBC television series Zoo Quest. But he was just as interested in the people he met and their music. Whenever he came across musicians, out came his early portable tape machine . "While I was theoretically looking for pythons, in the evenings I would record different types of music.." 

The recordings have been in the BBC's Sound Archive ever since and this is the first time they've been made available on CD. This collection features more than 50 recordings of traditional music from Sierra Leone, Paraguay, Madagascar, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Pacific Islands and northern Australia. With an extensive booklet drawing on David Attenborough's experiences compiled and with notes by BBC Producer Julian May, and stunning original photographs of the recording sessions.
