The Plymouth-Canton Educational Park library goes a long way back.  These recordings were originally taken on reel-to-reel tape and transferred to CD.  From CD, they were converted to MP3. In the process, some parts of the recordings were lost. Some of the documentation is a little sketchy as well.  Where available, the notes that accompanied the MP3s were added.  In some cases, the notes include titles, but they titles don't necessarily align with the track numbers.

Are you familiar with these pieces?  Can you match the title with the performance or give any background about the recordings?  Let us know!
