News | Topic unveil digital archive

Topic, described as “Europe’s oldest truly independent label”, will welcome in the new year by going back to the future as they begin The Great Big Digital Archive Project.

The 74-year-old label is aiming to make all of its back catalogue avilable digitally – along with digital booklets of the original artwork and explanatory YouTube videos – and they will begin with the first batch of 84 in January.

This will include artists like Ewan MacColl, June Taybor and Peggy Seegar – the type of artists who have influenced so many of those we feature on For Folk’s Sake every day.

The project will make a huge wealth of material available digitally, much of which has been out of print for 20 years or more.

The nice people at Topic have provided a handy video to explain the idea, or you can find out more at their website.
