That's very kind of your friend. Sounds like the sort of input this discussion needs.

Elsewhere, someone has thracked down a collection of "Negro songs" from Nova Scotia. I wondered if anyone knows anything about this collection?

Negro Songs - C. Miscellaneous items re: black music and narratives collected by Helen Creighton and others; includes article entitled "Music of the Blacks" by Helen Creighton - ca. 1969, report on black music taped by Marvin Burke for the Canadian Folk Music Society - 1967, "Negro Music in Nova Scotia," Tape 1 collected by Marvin Burke - 1967.
