Thread Name: Lomax songbooks, comparison of content
Subject: RE: Lomax songbooks, comparasion of content
The revised and enlarged 'Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads' (1938) includes at least four times the number of songs as the original - well worth having.
The editors are given as John and Alan Lomax.
Will provide an index should it be required Joe.
In my opinion (though some are 'of their time') all the Lomax books are worth looking out for.
