Thread Name: Warner field recordings on CD
Subject: RE: Warner field recordings on CD
I just finished listening to the one I picked up in Cleveland. It's an extraordinary experience to listen to those voices after hearing all about those folks from Frank Warner's performances --- as well as those of Jeff Warner and Jeff Davis. Lena Bourne Fish, Yankee John Galusha-----simply the closing of a loop for me. and the book has always been a wonderful part of my library. The prose portion is even as captivating as the songs themselves. This is as important as the Lomax reissues on Rounder and the Library of Congress CD that Steve Wade edited and the Beech Mountain recordings issued by Sandy Paton on Folk Legacy.

Nancy Jean, It was grand meeting you in Cleveland.
