Thread Name: Songbook of Child Ballads?
Subject: RE: Songbook of Child Ballads?
Hi, Art - I think it's better to wait and get the new edition from Loomis House Press - $24.95 per volume paperbound, and $34.95 cloth. Volumes 1 and 2 are available now. You can get them direct from Loomis House, or you can get them from Dick Greenhaus at CAMSCO, 800-548-3655. the Loomis House edition has tunes for many of the ballads, and the appendix has been incorporated into the primary text, so you can get information on songs without having to refer to two volumes.
I see they have some other old ballad classics coming out. I wish they could do Bronson.
