I spent a weekend with Jeff Warner last month. He, Roy Harris, Jerry Epstein and I were singing choruses on a forthcoming sea music CD. Jeff brought along the master of the Warner collection CD and we sat and listened to it at least twice from start to finish. At the very least, it's just great to hear those voices so long locked away. Many of them are 19th century voices. People spoke and sang quite differently then. And, of course, it is a great companion to the Warners very important collection of American folk song.
All the best,
