Thread Name: Sally Sloane, Australian source singer (1894-1982)
Subject: RE: Sally Sloane - Australian source singer
Jim, item 9 (currently - these things move around) in the Sally Sloane Wikipedia page will take you to Warren Fahey's recordings list which is separate from the list of Meredith-recorded items that Valda Low compiled. There may be something there as well.

Also worth noting is that while Meredith recorded Sally Sloane in the field and a subset of the songs were then issued on Wattle's "Australian Traditional Singers and Musicians" in 1957, Wattle took her into the studio to re-record the chosen numbers for release, and so those versions are different and in at least one case ("Christ was born in Bethlehem") she apparently remembered extra verses...
