Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 3
I just started working on George Collins a few days ago.
The article, music and text from Q (thanks Q) is found here on my site: http://bluegrassmessengers.com/george-collins--gardiner-collection-england-1909.aspx
Addtionally these important articles on George Collins are on my site:
George Collins- Barbara M. Cra'ster 1910
The "Johnny Collins" Version of Lady Alice- Bayard
The "Clerk Colvill" Mermaid- Harbison Parker 1947
Brown Collection- Lady Alice
The Brown collection is one of the extensive US collections along with Davis' 1929 TRadtional Ballads of Virgina.
