BOX 203-209, 253, 255-259, 261 MAPCASE FOLDER 10, 17 Recording Activity, 1974-2003
MacColl and Seeger released over a dozen records of their music both individually and as a duo on their Blackthorne label.

The Blackthorne Records sub-subseries minimally documents the recording process for fourteen releases. With the exception of Familiar Faces, which is well'documented, album material concerns the covers, including original artwork, rather than the recording activity itself although there are track lists and song drafts for several titles. The company’s business functions are documented through financial records related to international album distribution.

The Recording Activity subseries documents album creation, label management, and control of their song rights. A nearly complete photocopied set of album covers and their inserts provides a ready resource to the MacColl/Seeger output. The Discographies sub-subseries documents MacColl and Seegercompositions, song usage, rights, and permissions.

Materials consist of album cover artwork and inserts; catalogs and flyers; correspondence; copyright filings; discographies; financial documents including account books, balance sheets, bank records, invoices, receipts, and VAT account books; meeting minutes; record label catalogs, recording track lists; and song drafts.
Arranged into two sub-subseries: Blackthorne Records and Recording and Rights Management and then alphabetically therein.
