Thread Name: Ed McCurdy CDs and LPs
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy CDs and LPs
A couple of albums to add to the above lists with songs not listed at Folk Music index:
"Treasury of American Folk Song", Elektra EKL 205, accompanied by Erik Darling. 2 disc set. Features many songs not listed at Folk Music Index.
"Folk Songs of the Sea - WINDJAMMER", Spin-O-Rama #M 128. Artist listed a Chad Willis and the Beachstones, but it is unmistakeably Mr. McCurdy.
I also have an album of Cowboy Songs (can't find it at the moment) on a no-name label. One side, again is McCurdy under pseudonym.
Finally I have a McCurdy album on Spin-O-Rama #S 122,"Folk Songs and Hootenanny" which has a couple of songs not listed above. The strange thing about this album is that the photo is not Ed Murdy...or an extremely young EM (I doubt it), and the back of the album cover has line art of Hank Williams!

BTW, I believe Fok Music index is run by one Jane Keefer. About sixteen months ago I offered to add to her database from my quasi-extensive collection (about 500 LPs from about 1956), but she wanted copies of the recordings in addition to the information, and thought that was a bit much to ask.

She has done a great service with what she's provided, however.
