January 2006, Folk Music Journal 9(1):56-71, Graham Seal, Curtin University

To read the full-text of this research, you can request a copy directly from the author.

The nature and extent of A. L. Lloyds editing and reworking of Australian folk songs has long been a controversial issue in Australia. Examination of the extant Lloyd papers and a survey of the work of other researchers allows for a critical consideration of Lloyd editorial practices and also an assessment of his importance for Australian folk song scholarship. These issues are significant ones, both for understanding the nature of the Australian bush song tradition and for its general presentation to the public.
