Subject: RE: Huzzah for Mudcat, Max and Dick G
the folk process is with us forever, just no longer limited to oral tradition and misprints... lol
one thing that I have been trying on a smaller scale is to add books, LPs and CDs on the subjects of shanties, sea songs and maritime music, and encourage others to do so as well, to the Blunt library at Mystic Seaport. Their mission it the preservation of maritime history, etc so the material accession does not disappear but stays as long as the museum exists. many of the books they received had been discarded from various college libraries...
