  Alec Bisset

Alec Bisset played with Bob Smith's Ideal Band and recorded both with them and a few solo recordings. This discography is based on 78rpm records in my own collection, two LPs released in the 1970s, and an article published in Traditional Music magazine. I am interested in any other material relating to Alec Bisset (email me).
