Thread Name: Origins: Art Rosenbaum's Goodbye Old Booze
Subject: Goodbye Old Booze - source/origin ?
Refer to this topic: http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=68268
I found the second verse above in Rosenbaum's Mary Lomax book, see tune ' The Rambling Boy '(Laws L12) (last section of the book, not on the CDs).
One version was by Justis Begley at Anglo-American Ballads Vol. 2 (LoC album)
and another by Sue Trotman in 'Art of Field Recording Vol 2 (Dust-to-Digital box). But I don't find them similar.
The LP-only release of Folk Banjo Styles does have quite much liner notes,
but there is no mention of this tune in the text and I haven't found it elsewhere recorded by anyone.
Anyone here at Mudcat that do know where Art Rosenbaum got this tune from ?
