Thread Name: Jean Ritchie - her early recordings
Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie - her early recordings
From my parent's record collection,
I recognize two albums
that featured
Jean Ritchie and Oscar Brand as a vocal duo:
the Elektra Courting Songs,

and the other one, I recognize by the song tracks.
Your title here is "Riddle Me This" but
my parents' copy was called "Courting and Riddle Songs."
I can't recall the label though.

for freeing me of a Mondegreen!
For some reason, lo! those many years ago,
I never got that Jean Ritchie sang
"Poppy Buy Me a Big Glass Doll, Do, Poppy, Do."
There must have been a different title for that track.

Never mind what I thought it was,
I NEVER thought it was a Glass Doll. Message (now) Understood.
