Subject: RE: John Brune FolkSong collector
JIM,If anyone is dancing on anyones grave,you are doing that to John Brune.
I have a book of his called The Roving Songster[vol 1],it includes a song by Sydney Carter,twelve traditional songs[all good songs],and some of his own songs, none of which I am inspired to learn ,but are interesting,IF anyone gets achance to buy this book second hand they should do so.
John Brunes introduction, his views on folk traditions and the folk revival are also worth reading,I am pleased to own this book,it is a well used addition to my library.was there ever a volume two.
