Where to get folk dance music?

I have a bunch of old vinyl records with folk dance music on them - Hungarian, Romanian, Greek, and others.

I'd like to buy CD's to replace as many of these as possible. Plus, there are some folk dances I like that I never had on vinyl and I'd like to buy CD's with the songs if they exist.

Can anyone suggest sources for folk dance music on CD? Have any old vinyl favorites been re-released on CD?

Here are some links to some of my friends', who deal in International Music --

-- The New England "Folk Arts Center" (FAC) 'Little Shop of Horas."
www.facone.org . . .

-- Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS) -- more of an English/American feel, but with plenty of CD's to gad about in.

-- I'd even recommend both The Towerrecords.com website, and the Amazon websites. They actually have some good stuff on them.

I also found this -- And this is the first time I've ever seen it -- so, we'll both be seeing what we can find on it.

www.dunav.org.il . . .

The weekly International Folk Dance at M.I.T. utilizes a site for downloading their music, when they have to use "canned." (They have live music upon occasion.) I don't know if this is the site that they use.

Hope these help :)
