Thread Name: Songbook recommendations
Subject: RE: Songbooks
I've seen a reprint of 'Folk Songs of North America' recently. This gives a variety of songs from many sources, not just from the Lomaxs' collecting. It's one of the best anthologies. Generally, I keep away from anthologies. I'm partial to books from collectors, as the songs are usually the way the singer sang them, not like the way an editor imagined they should be.
