Subject: RE: book: Dear Companion: Cecil Sharp in America
I (CAMSCO Music) finally received pricing information from EFDSS on the Sharp Collection of US songs "Dear Companion". They charge £14.99 ($29 US) + shipping (roughly $8 to US). I can offer it for $28 + actual US postage (under $2.00 for media mail). Sorry about the high price, but it includes my shipping costs from the UK.
As usual, I'm not going to stock this item, so if you want to order it (if you haven't already), please E-mail me soonest, so I can tell how many to order.
On a related note, CAMSCO Music has recently re-released US editions of Folktrax's two CDs of material Maud Karpeles collected in the Southern Appalachians in the 50s. Well recorded, no snippets, good listening as well as (IMO) historically important.
I also carry Mike Yates' (the editor of Dear Companion) two 2-CD sets "Far in the Mountains" from his collecting trips in the Southern Appalachians (1979-1982) where he retraced Sharp's steps some 60 years later, and recorded decendants and relatives of Sharp's sources. A truly brilliant collection--$25 each for the 2-CD sets, along with superb notes and photos.
