I've been hunting without success for a post about a collector of old "ethnic" records. There's one song in particular that I'd love to hear again...

The recording -- I think it was supposed to be the guy's favorite, or the recording that had gotten him started collecting, or something like that -- was of an intense, mournful sounding singer from the early 20th century. I'm pretty sure she was Greek, or at least from the Eastern Mediterranean somewhere. (It was definitely not traditional Balkan singing, though I know we've had some good posts on that recently.)
