Thread Name: Help: Cowboy Songbooks Preservation Project
Subject: RE: Help: Cowboy Songbooks Preservation Project
The first edition of Ohrlin's "Hell-Bound Train" was notable for two floppy vinyl recordings included with it, with songs by John L. White and Glenn Ohrlin. Another good book is "The Whorehouse Bells Were Ringing" by Guy Logsdon, which has a good listing of old cowboy songbooks. The story about Gardner and Powder River, told above by Dale Rose, is preserved in Logsdon's book (Also Univ. Illinois Press).
