Field Recording of Eck Robertson


This is the well-known two-step Faded Love, which Robertson called Forsaken Lover. Even though this is a two-step, Robertson played it more like a march. His fiddling was very herky-jerky in the recording. He played it through three times, with significant variations each time in both parts. The ending is the B part from the second time through.
