Thread Name: Recording of Golden Vanity
Subject: RE: Recording of Golden Vanity
I found that one (we have the book) Extremly frustrating - it quotes a conversation including a couple of verses - no information of souce
I think what I am going to have to do is wait till the Irish folklore department comes out of hinernation I am going to have to ask them which one Tom Munnelly (my source and late friend) was referring to
For anybody interested, i've now found over fifty examples of recordings of the Child ballads from the tradition and several in print
A little overwhelming
Thanks for your help
