Thread Name: Tables of Contents are welcome!
Subject: TABLES of CONTENT are welcome!
I hope this isn't a repeat of another thread. I've looked through as many as I could and did not find what I desperately need. It's wonderful if you have a book in your hands and can look through the TOC to see what songs you do/do not have, but I have found that it's nearly impossible to find contents of songbooks. Instead of taking the risk, I don't order them or bid on ebay. Is it feasible to use this thread to list one TOC at a time? Some may take a bit of typing, but I myself would be happy to do so if it would help guide someone to a book that might get overlooked. If necessary, I would scan TOCs and place them in Photobucket, placing the link in a new post.

I spent most of Sunday searching for TOCS for various books, with no success. Following are several that I would buy IF I knew what songs are included:
The Bonnie Bunch of Roses by Dan Milner (1984)
Folksongs of Britain and Ireland by Peter Kennedy
The Roche Collection of Traditional Irish Music (1983)
Songs of the Sea, Rivers, Lakes and Canals by Jerry Silverman

It's fine to be told that they include many songs. However, if they repeat what I already have in my collection, which started in the Sixties, it's money wasted, true? Is this a worthwhile thread?
