Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Why (why so many active requests?)
I'm giving this a run today, Joe, on John Henry. OCR then checked characters and words. Following the format that you used on the Boll Weevil song to add it. Let me know if this is what you're looking for. Do you scan the music directly and add it as an image? I see simple melody lines in some of the songs, where in the book he has treble and bass lines and melody line above.
Also, I looked at a couple of books and have identified one (to start with) that isn't indexed in any of the places you linked to. Double check to see if I missed it in the search?
Folk Songs of England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales Selected and Edited by William Cole, with new arrangements for piano and guitar by Norman Monath. Doubleday & Co, Garden City, NY. 1961. This may be a derivative text - the author is apparently involved in creating anthologies on various subjects - on the inside flap it says
From the sensitive and accurate research of William Cole, and the fine and clear musical settings of Norman Monath, to the Handsome colored illustrations by Edward Ardizzone, this book will be a delightful and valuable addition to the library of every folk-song enthusiast.
