DT Lyrics:

Subject: Songbook Indexing; Oak Publications
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Aug 07 - 10:34 PM

Some of my favorite songbooks were published (mostly in the 1960s) by Oak Publications. I'm not sure of the history of Oak Publications. Their songbooks all seem to have a similar format, and that format is also used in songbooks from People's Songs and from Sing Out! Magazine. If you can post information about the history of Oak Publications, I'll incorporate it into the second message in this thread.

I think this (click) is a pretty good index of Oak Publications still in print

(although it does not include Oak books that have been republished by other companies)

      This is an edited PermaThread® for indexes of songbooks published by Oak Publications. This thread will be edited by Joe Offer. Feel free to post to this thread, but remember that all messages posted here are subject to editing or deletion.

Subject: Index: 101 plus 5 Songs for Camp (Oak)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Aug 07 - 10:38 PM

I got my start singing at campfires, so I've always loved camp songs. Years ago, I heard of an Oak Publications book called 101 Plus Five Songs for Camp [compiled and edited with notes by Mike Cohen on the use of folk songs in a camp music program, 1966]. From that day on, I coveted that book. I dated a woman in the mid-1990s, and I found out she had a copy of THAT book. It almost kept the relationship alive long after it should have died. Later, I was able to find my own copy, so I have no regrets about ending that relationship. Now that I look at the book, I see that most of the songs are far too sophisticated for the style of campfire singing that works for me - but they're good songs. Still, how can you think of camp songs without "The Hole In the Bottom of the Sea" and "The Deacon Went Down"?

Here's the index:

I first started dabbling in guitar tunings using Stefan Grossman's Guitar tuning book, first published by Oak. He also had a country blues guide out by Oak. Broadside magazine did some "best of" publications, which I think also came out on Oak.

Subject: Index: Songs for Swinging Housemothers (Oak)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Aug 07 - 11:21 PM

This one may be my favorite: Songs for Swinging Housemothers (Frank Lynn - revised edition, 1961 & 1963). I think this one was first published by another firm. By the way, the price on my copy is $2.95. I had an earlier (Pre-Oak) edition, but I gave it to my sister last week.

Subject: RE: Songbook Indexing: Oak Publications
From: Susan of DT
Date: 08 Aug 07 - 07:19 PM

I found the index I was looking for. I have two skinny books, one called "Oak Catalog" and one called "Oak Publications". Oak Publications lists 99 books, without years, and has a list of song titles and which Oak publications the song can be found in, referencing the publication by number. The Oak Catalog lists 116 publications, also numbered, but no song index. The end of that is "New Books for Spring 1971". Problem: the numbers on the books do not match from one catalog to the other.

So, what is the best way to handle this? If I scan the 24 pages, where/how would I post them?

And, of course, this is 35+ years old.

Music Sales Corp acquired Oak before that 1971 date. I don't know whether Oak is still producing books [I suspect not] or when they stopped, if they stopped.

Regarding the history of Oak Publications I'm having difficulty sorting out the relationships of a company called People's Artists Inc. which published The People's Song Book, Lift Every Voice (The Second People's Song Book) and the Songs of Joe Hill probably others) in the 1950's and to Sing Out! and to Folkways Records. The earliest Oak publication I have found is about 1961. Some names appear on the editorial staff of all of these - Moses Asch, Irwin Silber, Jerry Silverman, Pete Seeger. Does anyone know the history ? of these.

According to Peter Goldsmith's book about Moe Asch and Folkways Records, "Making People's Music," here is the sequence of events relative to Oak Publications, Sing Out! and Folkways Records:

After Peoples' Artists (which owned Sing Out!) disbanded on 1957, Irwin Silber convinced Moe Asch of Folkways to purchase a 45% interest in Sing Out!, with Silber owning 45% and Pete Seeger holding the remaining 10%. Oak was started in 1960 as a publishing channel for the series of "Reprints From Sing Out!" books, but it quickly expanded its list to include instrumental instruction books, collections of folk and folk-related songs, and Guy Carawan's important collection of songs from the Civil Rights movement (aka "Freedom Songs"). Through the early 1960s, the profits from Oak were enough to sustain the magazine.

In 1967, Asch and Silber dissolved their partnership and sold Oak Publications to Music Sales, Inc. Shortly after that, the editorial board of Sing Out! bought the magazine, which no longer had the revenue from Oak to support it. As a result, Sing Out! went through some difficult times in the late 1960s.

I also have Ewan MacColl's "Folk Songs and Ballads of Scotland" and Ruth Rubin's "Jewish Folk Songs" which I don't think have been done yet. Shortly.

I couldn't see it listed above (though I think it's been mentioned on Mudcat before), but the index for Sing Out! is available online at Song Index for Sing Out!. (This is a direct link to the page, but it can be accessed indirectly in the frames from the Sing Out site; follow link to the Sing Out Resource Centre, then from there to the index).

I've got some Oak books. The ones to hand appear to be:

Old-Time String Band Songbook (not listed above, but with dates 1964, 1976)

Masters of the Instrumental Blues Guitar (1967)

and two more recent ones:

The Gow Collection of Scottish Dance Music (1986)
Western Swing Fiddle (1994)

I think I've got some more, but would probably have to hunt around for them (not on shelves!)

I'll try and put up the contents for the two early ones tomorrow.

Hi, Mick - Old-Time String Band Songbook was indexed above under the title New Lost City Ramblers Songbook

I found a first edition of this book for sale online for $650 (and didn't buy it). I paid $20 for my second edition, and I couldn't pass up a paperback I found later for $8.99. Maybe they'll pay for my grandchildren's education....

This page (click) has some interesting information on the book:
    Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and John and Alan Lomax, made a huge impact on folk music in America, one which is still felt today. It is likely that their joint efforts with each other and many others fostered that sense of community which is still present in modern folk music circles. Seeger, Guthrie, and Alan Lomax collaborated on a number of projects, including a book of protest songs that Alan had been collecting. His father, John, had considered them "too protesty" for his own publications. In 1940, Alan passed the songs on to Seeger and Guthrie who compiled them and wrote introductions and copy for the book, "Hard Hitting Songs for Hard Hit People." Unfortunately, the songs were considered so radical that they were unable to find a publisher. The book eventually was published in 1967.
The book was reissued by the University of Nebraska Press on November 1, 1999. As far as I can tell, it is no longer in print - but copies are available for consideraby less than $650.

Q asked that we NOT post the index to Folksingers' Wordbook (click for index), apparently because he thinks it's too long. I suppose that's a reasonable request. Same with The Peggy Seeger Songbook: Warts and All and The Essential Ewan MacColl Songbook, both of which are relatively recent publications from Oak (click).
Still, if somebody were to provide a link to online indexes for these books, that would be a wonderful contribution.

    The chastity belt
    The flowers of Manchester

    Death come easy
    Kids' colour bar
    Leave me now

    Liverpool Lou
    The patriot game
    The sea around us

    The H-bomb's thunder
    Oh 007 (Leave those girls alone)

    Been on the road so long
    Drinkin's ower risky

    Come and get me
    The way of the world
    We know the day is coming
    You can't make a racehorse crow
    You fly too bold
    You'll be proud of me

    The apprentice's song
    The canny miner lad
    Come kiss me love
    Hard life on the cut
    The snow is falling
    The sun is burning

    Friday morning
    Glass of water
    Judas and Mary
    Landlord and tenant
    The rat race
    A reel of recording tape
    Silver in the stubble
    Standing in the rain

    Long time boy

    A cold wind blows
    The invisible backwards-facing
    grocer who rose to fame

    I wish I was a silver watch
    I'll tell you where to put it if you like

    The merry wives of Camberley

    The Arbroath tragedy

    Tuesday breakfast

    The hunters
    The mercenaries

    There once was a garden

    The three friends

    Courting blues
    Harvest your thoughts of love
    It don't bother me
    A man I'd rather be
    The needle of death
    Oh how your love is strong
    Oh my babe
    Ramblin's gonna be the death of me
    Running from home
    Strolling down the highway

    Ellen Vannin
    Marco Polo

    Comeallye and gobackagain
    Four pounds a day
    I wish I was back in Liverpool
    Liverpool lullaby

    The hielan'man
    Lots of little soldiers
    Stop the world I've lost my yo-yo
    Three nights and a Sunday double time

    Sweet greens and blues

    They let Delgado die

    National Seven

    Across the hills
    Battle Hymn of the New Socialist Party
    History lesson
    I wish I was back in Liverpool
    There's gonna come a morning

    Helping the police

    The oggy man

    The pick and the malt shovel

    I loved a lad

    Comeallye and gobackagain
    Four pounds a day
    The hunters
    I'll tell you where to put it if you like
    The jolly farmer
    They let Delgado die

    Motorbike kid
    The quiet beast

Not posted so far (unless I skipped over it) is "Anthology of American Folk Music," edited by Josh Dunson and Ethel Raim, 1973.

Someone here at Mudcat posted a link to it and I made a copy. If someone has an original copy, that would be the best one to list, but I can do it if the original poster can't be contacted.

Pete Seeger's "How to Play the 5-String Banjo" was eventually picked up by Oak. It is listed on the back cover of a 1974 Oak publication along with some other titles not on the list at the top. The version of Pete's book that i have is 3rd Edition Revised, 1962 which was still published by Pete himself. So the Oak version would have been after 1862 and before 1974. My version does not have an index to the songs included although there are many with both banjo tabs and melody lines.

Thank you kindly, GM.
One might wonder why Geoff Lawes posted a link to the song index of Sing Out! Magazine. Since its beginning in 1950, Sing Out! has had words and music for several songs in each issue, always in a distinctive format. You'll notice the same format in the Oak Publications songbooks, and it was similar in the People's Songs Bulletin. Irwin Silber (1925-2010) was the executive director of People's Songs from 1947-1949. He was editor of Sing Out! 1950-1967, and he was associate producer at Folkways Records 1958-1964. From 1960-1967, Silber was Editor and Co-Publisher (with Moses Asch) of Oak Publications.

Does anyone know who originally did "I'll Tell You What I Saw Last Night"? It sounds like something Blind Alfred Reed would've written
