Somebody on here was talking about hearing early recordings of Benny Thomasson where he plays the tunes in a more traditional way that is less like Contest Style as we know it today. I think he said they were field recordings from the 1950s. How can I hear these? Are they online?

There are quite a few here:
however, none are dated. Guess you'll just have to listen and decide if they were recorded before or after he became famous. Funny, another FHO member and I were recently chatting how fiddlers tended to play tunes faster and more "notey" after they got popular and listened to on recordings and radio.
Great link! Thanks. :)
