Thread Name: Ballad Books
Subject: RE: Ballad Books
I had trouble with the "only" selections, too. Then I found out I could choose more than one item, so I had three "onlys" to answer some questions.

I do have to say that too many books of ballads seem like recycled condensations of Child, maybe with the words modernized a bit. If almost the same version is available in Child, I don't want to see it in another ballad book.
