The Pennywhistlers: Folksongs of Eastern Europe (1967)
The Pennywhistlers were an American singing group. They specialized in Eastern European choral music, sung primarily a cappella.
This was from a record store in Davis, California, very reasonably priced at $1.99. It is in fair condition, with scratches affecting some of the tracks. It is not on CD.
From the LP: "To hear Bulgarian, Serbian, or Russian music performed so well that one forgets that one is listening to a group of American girls is ample proof of their work's high value... - Theodore Bikel"
