Thread Name: Songbook recommendations
Subject: RE: Songbooks
I seem to remember Pete Seeger giving a quote someone else made saying that a folk song in a book is like a picture of a bird in mid-flight. You can't see where the bird has been or where it will go next. You just have a pretty good idea of where it was when the picture was taken.

I enjoy Jerry Silverman's books.
