B-4000
Notes from the late Dennis Boxell:

B (Boxell)-4000 were all 78 Radioprum from Filcich's basement except for A-2 "Kamishitsa" and B-2 "Danets-Zborenka". I didn't notate any of the musicians or groups listed on the labels. A-1 "Sitno Zhensko Horo" was called something else but all the other titles are on the original 78s. A-2 and B-2 were from my tapes from London. Danny Lumbly's Bulgarian Dance club gave me the reel to reel tapes (same source as Bavno and Tresenitsa). He recorded the rehearsal musicians of the special group in Sofia who worked with his dancers in the 1950s when they went there to help rebuild the new Bulgaria.
