Thread Name: John Lomax's credibility, an example
Subject: RE: John Lomax's credibility, an example
You kinda lost us there, Joseph. You're referring to page 348 of Our Singing Country (Folk Song U.S.A.), the 1949 book by John and Alan Lomax.
And yeah, I admit I get frustrated reading John Lomax, because he leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Alan Lomax is much better, but I think the trade of collecting had become much more sophisticated by the time Alan came of age.
