The Cotswold Tape Recording Society

Cotswold Characters
Saydisc 1970

"In the May of 1960, a group of amateurs formed the Cotswold Tape Recording Society & one of its earliest activities was the production of a programme of entertainment for local hospitals.

... In general there are two distinct Cotswold voices: a high-pitched head-voice (exemplified here by Miss Amy Cook) & a more guttural chest-voice as demonstrated by Don Ellis.

... With people like these an era will pass away yet, through the magnetic memory of the tape-recorder, their speech can still be heard and bring back the past."
