Options March 20, 2012: Frank Brink: Sounds of Alaska

FRANK BRINK: SOUNDS OF ALASKA

Sounds of Alaska was designed to present meaningful and outstanding impressions of Alaska. The selection of these impressions was based on their appeal to Alaskans as well as to the many visitors who might never be able to stay in Alaska long enough to know the sources from which Sounds of Alaska were derived. This recording does not attempt to present a comprehensive picture, nor even the most important aspects of life in Alaska. It is not a historical account, nor does it attempt to follow a geographical, or historical pattern. It does however, attempt to preserve some of the feeling of old Alaska before radio, TV, and modern transportation, a feeling which is alive now only in the memories of the old timers. It introduces to new Alaskans authentic impressions of character of some of the people known and unknown who have either made a significant contribution to the growth of Alaska, or who have made life more colorful during their moment in the "great land".  From the back cover, written in the late 1950s.
