The Southern Folklife Collection (SFC) will be bringing back the classics in a record sale on Nov. 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room of Wilson Library.

Thousands of old-time, country, folk, blues, jazz, and rock recordings will be sold. Items consist of CDs, LPs, 45s, 78s, cassettes, and 8-tracks, including some rare and out-of-print recordings. Artists include Bessie Smith, Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Emmylou Harris, and the Red Clay Ramblers. Magazines and books will also be for sale.

Each record will be individually priced at fair market value and is either a duplicate or beyond the scope of the SFC, according to SFC head Steve Weiss. All proceeds will go to the collection.

This will be the SFC’s third record sale. Previous sales, in 2000 and 2009, raised $4,000 each.
