Kim Karma's story of the blues..

Preserving Britain’s lost musical heritage

"The sixties saw an unprecedented revolution in popular music, but for every hit, a hundred remained unreleased. For half a century, they have gathered dust on the shelves of studios and in performers attics. The BMA is unique in bringing these neglected recordings into the public domain. It is an indispensable service, invaluable to both performers of the past and audiences of the present and future." Barry Fantoni
