Thread Name: John Barleycorn in USA?
Subject: RE: John Barleycorn in USA?
It's been collected from Canada under the title "The Barley Grain" by Edith Fowke from O. J. Abbott and aside from issues of her field collections best tracked down in Canadian release by Canadian Catters, a live version by Abbott (w/ banjo backup by Pete Seeger) is on "The Folk Music of the Newport Folk Festival 1959-60, Vol. 1" (Folkways FA 2341 as an LP)
Probably reissued on CD by Folkways, but anything ever put out on Folkways can be custom ordered from them.
Try looking for the alternative title.
