The four books were Marrow Bones, Wanton Seed, Constant Lovers and Foggy Dew and I think they were published in that order. For some reason Foggy Dew is especially rare. It may be that people's copies have fallen apart - I have only ever seen one intact one (!!) - the other reason is that people hang on to them!!
They were not especially brilliant pieces of production (IMHO) because the pages were glued into the spine. However they were terrific pieces of work and have been a great influence on generations of singers, and quite rightly so.
I was looking forward to the new version and I know Malcolm and Steve have done a lot of work making sure of its accuracy. A fitting tribute to Frank.
