Thread Name: Help: Everything Malvina!
Subject: Malvina Reynolds
The home page makes mention of a Smitsononian/Folkways recording called Ear to the Ground, a collection of 23 cuts recorded by Malvina. Rosalie Sorrels canme out with a Malvina tribute CD called No Closing Chord: The Songs of Malvina Reynolds. Bot of these CD's are good, but I prefer the one by Malvina herself. Click here for more information about these recordings. There are some Malvina songbooks click here, butAmazon lists them as "special order," which often means they're out of print and unavailable. Oak Publications had a couple of gems, Little Boxes and Other Handmade Songs (1964) and The Muse of Parker Street: More Songs by Malvina Reynolds (1967). In 1976, Malvina's Shroder Music Company published There's Music in the Air: Songs for the Middle-Young by Malvina Reynolds. You may be able to find these by checking the used book merchants like Bookfinder. Sorry, my copies aren't for sale, but I'm willing to post lyrics for any of the songs. I'll post the songbook indexes later.
