Thread Name: Songbook recommendations
Subject: RE: Songbooks
By the way, I'm really impressed with the songbook reprints that Dover Publications has published. Besides the Lomax & Lomax "American Ballads and Folk Songs," I have "Songs and Ballads from Nova Scotia," "Folk Songs of New England," and a 1956 book by Richard Chase called "American Folk Tales and Songs." Then there's "Songs of Work and Protest," by Edith Fowke & Joe Glazer, and Irwin Silber's "Songs of the Civil War." These books are treasures that would otherwise have been lost. Dover must be making money since they have such a wide variety of reprints out, but their prices are very reasonable.
